Scientific Linux Security Update : krb5 on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60894
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the way the MIT Kerberos KDC handled TGS (Ticket-granting Server) request messages. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to crash the KDC or, possibly, disclose KDC memory or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the KDC (krb5kdc). (CVE-2010-1322)
After installing the updated packages, the krb5kdc daemon will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
