Fedora 14 : krb5-1.8.2-6.fc14 (2010-15803)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49988


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update incorporates the upstream patch to fix an uninitialized pointer crash in the KDC's authorization data handling routines (CVE-2010-1322). It also pulls up a few backports and compilation flag changes from F15.

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.
