Fedora 14 : krb5-1.8.2-9.fc14 (2011-3462)

High Nessus Plugin ID 52964


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update incorporates upstream fixes for a double-free in the KDC which could occur if the KDC needed to send back typed-data along with an error (MITKRB5-SA-2011-003, CVE-2011-0284).

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.
