Name        : krb5
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 1.7.1
Release     : 17.fc13

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 fixes from upstream advisories MITKRB5-SA-2011-001 (standalone kpropd exits if a per-client child exits with an error) and MITKRB5-SA-2011-002 (uninitialized pointer crash in the KDC, hang or crash in the KDC with the LDAP backend).

* Tue Feb  8 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-17
- add upstream patches to fix standalone kpropd exiting if the per-client
  child process exits with an error (MITKRB5-SA-2011-001), and a hang or
  crash in the KDC when using the LDAP kdb backend (MITKRB5-SA-2011-002)
  (CVE-2010-4022, #664009, CVE-2011-0281, #668719, CVE-2011-0282, #668726)
* Tue Nov 30 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-16
- add upstream patch to fix various issues from MITKRB5-SA-2010-007
  (CVE-2010-1323, #648734, CVE-2010-1324, #648674)
* Thu Sep 23 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-15
- make -libs actually own /usr/kerberos, because it may be the only reason
  that directory exists, due to owning /usr/kerberos/share (#636746)
* Mon Sep 13 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-14
- revert pathmunge-related changes because pathmunge() isn't always there
  if we've upgraded or anything weird's happened (#633212)
* Wed Aug 25 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-13
- adjust the last patch to apply properly to 1.7.1
* Tue Aug 24 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.7.1-12
- fix a logic bug in computing key expiration times (RT#6762, #627022)
* Mon Jun 21 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com>
- pull up fix for upstream #6745, in which the gssapi library would add the
  wrong error table but subsequently attempt to unload the right one
* 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
  than doing it the harder way ourselves (part of #544652)
* 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
- 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> 1.7.1-9
- fix output of kprop's init script's "status" and "reload" commands (#588222)
