Name        : krb5
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.6.3
Release     : 31.fc11
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:

Shawn Emery discovered a remotely-triggerable null pointer dereference in the
Kerberos GSS-API library which could be used to cause GSS-API-authenticated
services to crash.  This update incorporates fixes to instead correctly detect
the error and return an error code.

* Tue May 18 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.6.3-31
- add patch to correct GSSAPI library null pointer dereference which could be
  triggered by malformed client requests (CVE-2010-1321, #582466)
* Tue May  4 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.6.3-30
- fix output of kprop's init script's "status" and "reload" commands (#588222)
* Tue Apr  6 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-29
- add backported patch to fix a few use-after-free bugs, including one in
  kadmind (CVE-2010-0629, #576011)
* Mon Mar  8 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-28
- pull up patch to get the client libraries to correctly perform password
  changes over IPv6 (Sumit Bose, RT#6661)
* Wed Mar  3 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-27
- fix a null pointer dereference and crash introduced in our PAM patch that
  would happen if ftpd was given the name of a user who wasn't known to the
  local system, limited to being triggerable by gssapi-authenticated clients by
  the default xinetd config (Olivier Fourdan, #569472)
* Tue Mar  2 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-26
- fix a regression (not labeling a kdb database lock file correctly, #569902)
- add a workaround to build with OpenSSL 1.0, which changed the signature
  of EVP_PKEY_decrypt()
* Fri Jan 22 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-25
- use portreserve correctly -- portrelease takes the basename of the file
  whose entries should be released, so we need three files, not one
* Thu Jan 14 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-24
- use portreserve to make sure the KDC can always bind to the kerberos-iv
  port, kpropd can always bind to the krb5_prop port, and that kadmind can
  always bind to the kerberos-adm port (#555279)
- backport the LSB headers for the init scripts
- make the kpropd init script treat 'reload' as 'restart' (part of #225974)
* Tue Jan 12 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.6.3-23
- add upstream patch for integer underflow during AES and RC4 decryption
  (CVE-2009-4212), via Tom Yu (#545015)
* Tue Jun 30 2009 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com>
- pam_rhosts_auth.so's been gone, use pam_rhosts.so instead
* Mon Jun  8 2009 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.6.3-22
- put %{krb5prefix}/sbin in everyone's path, too (#504525)
* Tue May 26 2009 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.6.3-21
- don't depend on the execute bit being set on scripts that are sources
