Fedora 15 : krb5-1.9.2-4.fc15 (2011-16284)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update rebases Fedora 15 and 16 from version 1.9.1 to version
1.9.2, incorporating a recent security update and some of the fixes we
were previously backporting, among others. It also incorporates fixes
for NULL pointer dereferences which the KDC could make while
processing TGS requests (CVE-2011-1530).

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.
