Fedora Core 6 : krb5-1.5-21 (2007-408)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24927


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update incorporates fixes for MITKRB5-SA-2007-001 (unauthorized access via telnetd), MITKRB5-SA-2007-002 (buffer overflow in KDC and kadmind logging), and MITKRB5-SA-2007-003 (double-free in kadmind).

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


Update the affected packages.
