Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update incorporates upstream fixes for a double-free in the KDC
which could occur if the KDC needed to send back typed-data along with
an error (MITKRB5-SA-2011-003, CVE-2011-0284).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
