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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
Security Fix(es) :
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in MIT Kerberos kadmind service. An authenticated attacker with permission to modify a principal entry could use this flaw to cause kadmind to dereference a NULL pointer and crash by supplying an empty DB argument to the modify_principal command, if kadmind was configured to use the LDAP KDB module. (CVE-2016-3119)
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in MIT Kerberos krb5kdc service. An authenticated attacker could use this flaw to cause krb5kdc to dereference a NULL pointer and crash by making an S4U2Self request, if the restrict_anonymous_to_tgt option was set to true.
