high Nessus Plugin ID 27308
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: 6.7


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


A bug in the function krb5_klog_syslog() leads to a buffer overflow which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2007-0957).

A double-free bug in the GSS-API library could crash kadmind. It's potentially also exploitable to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2007-1216).


Update the affected krb5 packages.
