New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the krb5 packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in MIT Kerberos kadmind service. An authenticated attacker with permission to modify a principal entry could use this flaw to cause kadmind to dereference a NULL pointer and crash by supplying an empty DB argument to the modify_principal command, if kadmind was configured to use the LDAP KDB module. (CVE-2016-3119)

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

Solution

Update the affected krb5 package.
