Fedora 19 : krb5-1.11.3-13.fc19 (2013-21786)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 71181


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update incorporates a fix for a bug which could cause clients which attempted to contact servers using TCP to become wedge. This update incorporates fixes for a possible remotely-triggered crash in KDCs which are configured to serve multiple realms at once (CVE-2013-1418), and another which could occur while the KDC processed certain requests using referrals (CVE-2013-1417).

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.
