Name        : krb5
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 1.7
Release     : 15.fc12
URL         : http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/www/
Summary     : The Kerberos network authentication system
Description :
Kerberos V5 is a trusted-third-party network authentication system,
which can improve your network's security by eliminating the insecure
practice of cleartext passwords.

Update Information:

This update incorporates the upstream patches to fix CVE-2009-3295, a remotely-
triggerable crash in the KDC.    This update also addresses some packaging bugs,
makes changes to the PAM support in ksu, and backports a change which allows
GSSAPI acceptors to store delegated Kerberos credentials in credential caches
when clients use SPNEGO.
