FreeBSD : cURL -- inappropriate GSSAPI delegation (9aecb94c-c1ad-11e3-a5ac-001b21614864)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73551


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


cURL reports :

When doing GSSAPI authentication, libcurl unconditionally performs credential delegation. This hands the server a copy of the client's security credentials, allowing the server to impersonate the client to any other using the same GSSAPI mechanism.


Update the affected packages.
