Fedora 13 : krb5-1.7.1-19.fc13 (2011-5343)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 53554


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update incorporates the upstream patches to fix an attempt to free an invalid pointer in kadmind (MITKRB5-SA-2011-004).

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.
