New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update incorporates backported upstream fixes for potential crashes caused by attempts to process malformed GSSAPI messages (CVE-2014-4341, CVE-2014-4342). It also incorporates fexes for a possible double-free (CVE-2014-4343) and a possible NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2014-4344) in GSSAPI clients.

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.

Solution

Update the affected krb5 package.
