Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : krb5 (MDKSA-2001:093)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 13906


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A buffer overflow exists in the telnet portion of Kerberos that could provide root access to local users. MDKSA-2001:068 provided a similar fix to the normal telnet packages, but the Kerberized equivalent was not updated previously.


Update the affected packages.
