openSUSE 10 Security Update : krb5 (krb5-3045)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27308


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.
