Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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

mod_auth_kerb is module for the Apache HTTP Server designed to
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).
