Fedora 8 : pam_krb5-2.2.18-2.fc8 (2008-8605)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 34343


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update adds a backported fix for CVE-2008-3825, a credential cache permission bypass which becomes possible when the 'existing_ticket' option is enabled.

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 pam_krb5 package.
