openSUSE Security Update : krb5-appl (openSUSE-SU-2012:0019-1)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 75886


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update of krb5 applications fixes two security issues.

CVE-2011-4862: A remote code execution in the kerberized telnet daemon was fixed. (This only affects the ktelnetd from the krb5-appl RPM, not the regular telnetd supplied by SUSE.)

CVE-2011-1526 / MITKRB5-SA-2011-005: Fixed krb5 ftpd unauthorized file access problems.


Update the affected krb5-appl packages.
