Fedora 12 : krb5-1.7.1-9.fc12 (2010-8805)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47513

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Shawn Emery discovered a remotely-triggerable NULL pointer dereference in the Kerberos GSS-API library which could be used to cause GSS-API-authenticated services to crash. This update incorporates fixes to instead correctly detect the error and return an error code.

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.

Solution

Update the affected krb5 package.
