SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2007:004 (krb5).
Various bugs in the Kerberos5 libraries and tools were fixed which could be used by remote attackers to crash and potentially execute code in kadmind.
- CVE-2006-6144 / MITKRB5-SA-2006-002: the RPC library could call an uninitialized function pointer, which created a security vulnerability for kadmind.
- CVE-2006-6143 / MITKRB5-SA-2006-003: the GSS-API mechglue layer could fail to initialize some output pointers, causing callers to attempt to free uninitialized pointers. This caused a security vulnerability in kadmind.
