Fedora 11 : krb5-1.6.3-29.fc11 (2010-6108)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47416


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Sol Jerome noticed that the kadmind server daemon could be made to dereference freed memory and crash. This update backports the changeset which contains the fix for this bug (CVE-2010-0629).

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 krb5 package.
