Fedora 24 : krb5-1.14.1-3.fc24 (2016-8dbc4ade25)

high Nessus Plugin ID 90216
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 Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

CVE-2016-3119, NULL dereference in LDAP module. ---- Fix an issue with return codes on `gss_inquire_attrs_for_mech`. This resolves an issue with gss-ntlmssp, and anything else that is interposing but not implementing the corresponding mechglue function.

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.
