Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57661
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0746
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0746.

mod_auth_kerb is module for the Apache HTTP Server designed to
provide Kerberos authentication over HTTP.

An off by one flaw was found in the way mod_auth_kerb handles certain
Kerberos authentication messages. A remote client could send a specially
crafted authentication request which could crash an httpd child process
(CVE-2006-5989).

A bug in the handling of multiple realms configured using the
KrbAuthRealms directive has also been fixed.

All users of mod_auth_kerb should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches that resolve these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
