Fedora 27 : krb5 (2017-2dd6c320a4)

High Nessus Plugin ID 105842


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fix CVE-2017-15088 (Buffer overflow in get_matching_data())


Remove build dependency on python-pyrad. It is only used on the test suite, and we gracefully skip the tests if it is not present.

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


Update the affected krb5 package.
