Fedora 19 : krb5-1.11.2-6.fc19 (2013-8113)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update pulls in the upstream fix for a UDP ping-pong
vulnerability in the kpasswd service provided by kadmind
(CVE-2002-2443), and modifies the client library to treat KRB5CCNAME
values which begin with 'DIR::' in a way that's almost the same as the
way it treats values which begin with 'DIR:'.

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.
