Fedora 18 : krb5-1.10.3-14.fc18 (2013-3147)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update incorporates the upstream fix for possible NULL pointer
dereferences which could occur if a client sent a malformed PKINIT
request to a KDC (CVE-2013-1415), or if a client sent a draft9 PKINIT
request to a KDC (CVE-2012-1016).

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.
