New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The following issues have been fixed :

- CVE-2011-1528: In releases krb5-1.8 and later, the KDC can crash due to an assertion failure.

- CVE-2011-1529: In releases krb5-1.8 and later, the KDC can crash due to a NULL pointer dereference.

Both bugs could be triggered by unauthenticated remote attackers.
Additionally CVE-2011-1526 was fixed that allowed authenticated users to access files via krb5 ftpd they should not have access to.
