medium Nessus Plugin ID 36535
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The spnego_gss_accept_sec_context function in lib/gssapi/spnego/spnego_mech.c in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.6.3, when SPNEGO is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via invalid ContextFlags data in the reqFlags field in a negTokenInit token (CVE-2009-0845).

This update provides the fix for that security issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
