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's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Clients sending negotiation requests with invalid flags could crash the kerberos server (CVE-2009-0845).

GSS-API clients could crash when reading from an invalid address space (CVE-2009-0844).

Invalid length checks could crash applications using the kerberos ASN.1 parser (CVE-2009-0847).

Under certain circumstances the ASN.1 parser could free an uninitialized pointer which could crash a kerberos server or even lead to execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2009-0846).

Solution

Update the affected krb5 packages.
