Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-1341 (mod_auth_kerb).

provide Kerberos authentication over HTTP. The module supports the
Negotiate authentication method, which performs full Kerberos
authentication based on ticket exchanges.

mod_auth_kerb, version 5.3, which includes the fix for a
security issue.

which could crash an httpd child process (CVE-2006-5989).
