Fedora 18 : krb5-1.10.3-15.fc18 (2013-5280)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66007


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


These updates incorporate the upstream patch for a NULL pointer dereference in the KDC which could occur while processing certain TGS requests (CVE-2013-1416).

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.
