Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : kerberos (cve_2013_1416_denial_of)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80651


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- The prep_reprocess_req function in do_tgs_req.c in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) before 1.10.5 does not properly perform service-principal realm referral, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via a crafted TGS-REQ request. (CVE-2013-1416)
