MDKSA-2005:061: krb5

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the krb5 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:061 (krb5).



Two buffer overflow issues were discovered in the way telnet clients handle
messages from a server. Because of these issues, a possible hacker may be able to
execute arbitray code on the victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into
connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Kerberos package contains a telnet
client and is patched to deal with these issues.
