Low Nessus Plugin ID 50848

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: 1.4

Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in krb5 :

An unauthenticated remote attacker could alter a SAM-2 challenge, affecting the prompt text seen by the user or the kind of response sent to the KDC. Under some circumstances, this can negate the incremental security benefit of using a single-use authentication mechanism token. An unauthenticated remote attacker has a 1/256 chance of forging KRB-SAFE messages in an application protocol if the targeted pre-existing session uses an RC4 session key. Few application protocols use KRB-SAFE messages (CVE-2010-1323).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution
