JFYI: SLES10 has 1.4.x and SLES11 has 1.6.x. So both are not affected.

openSUSE 11.3 and 11.4 has krb5-1.8.x So they are affected by CVE-2011-1528 and CVE-2011-1529

Factory aka 12.1 has 1.9.x and is affected by all of these.

I will update openSUSE after 18 October 2011 (CRD)
Comment 3 Michael Calmer 2011-10-17 14:13:11 UTC
Patches ready on my HD.

JFYI: 12.1 not yet released. This means that I will submit the fix to Factory as soon as CRD reached.
Comment 4 Swamp Workflow Management 2011-10-18 08:37:38 UTC

Comment 5 Sebastian Krahmer 2011-10-18 08:41:25 UTC
There is also bnc#698471 on the planned update list. Can you incorporate these?
Comment 6 Michael Calmer 2011-10-18 09:16:24 UTC
See Bug 698471 Comment #4:

package krb5-appl:

openSUSE 11.3, 11.4, Factory

This means, that a different package is affected. krb5-appl is already submitted to 11.3 and 11.4. If you want to include them too, take care to add the package to the patchinfo file.

In SLES 11 SP1 this fix is part of the main krb5 package which is also submitted, but not checked in yet. But *this* Bug does not affect SLES11 SP1.

What do you want to release?
Comment 7 Sebastian Krahmer 2011-10-18 09:27:57 UTC
I added krb5-appl to the swamp. So, for SLE it seems 698471 stays on
the planned list since we are not doing updates for this one either
as its not affected.

So at the end we just have box updates for both bugs handled by swamp 43703.
Comment 8 Michael Calmer 2011-10-18 09:31:51 UTC
Ok, fine. I will submit krb5 packages tomorrow to OBS after the announcement is out.
Comment 9 Michael Calmer 2011-10-19 08:17:46 UTC
Packages submited.
