Fedora 16 : krb5-1.9.4-3.fc16 (2012-11370)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update updates the package from version 1.9.3 to version 1.9.4,
mainly to pick up a fix for an interoperability problem with Windows
Server 2008R2 read-only domain controllers, and incorporates the
upstream fix for CVE-2012-1015, in which the KDC could be made to
attempt to free an uninitialized pointer.

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.
