EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.1 : krb5 (EulerOS-SA-2018-1376)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 119067


The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected krb5 package.
