Fedora Update Notification
2010-08-26 00:26:11

Name        : krb5
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 1.7.1
Release     : 13.fc13
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:

A bug in the LDAP kdb backend module caused key expiration times to be computed
incorrectly in some cases, and the ksu application incorrectly performed PAM
account and session management as the invoking user rather than as root.  This
update corrects these bugs.

* Wed Jun  9 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.7.1-11
- use the "pathmunge" function to add %{krb5prefix}/bin to $PATH rather

* Thu May 27 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com>
- ksu: move session management calls to before we drop privileges, like
  su does (#596887), and don't skip the PAM account check for root or the
  same user (more of #540769)
* Tue May 18 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-10
