Fedora 16 : krb5-1.9.2-4.fc16 (2011-16296)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57143


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update rebases Fedora 15 and 16 from version 1.9.1 to version 1.9.2, incorporating a recent security update, and some of the fixes we were previously backporting, among others. It also incorporates fixes for NULL pointer dereferences which the KDC could make while processing TGS requests (CVE-2011-1530).

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.
