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.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated krb5 package fixes security vulnerabilities :
MIT Kerberos 5 allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a buffer over-read or NULL pointer dereference, by injecting invalid tokens into a GSSAPI application session (CVE-2014-4341, CVE-2014-4342).
MIT Kerberos 5 allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a double-free flaw or NULL pointer dereference, while processing invalid SPNEGO tokens (CVE-2014-4344).
In MIT Kerberos 5, when kadmind is configured to use LDAP for the KDC database, an authenticated remote attacker can cause it to perform an out-of-bounds write (buffer overflow) (CVE-2014-4345).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
