Fixed In Version: krb5-1.10.3-10.el6_4.4
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When the application lookup_etypes_for_keytab() function in krb5-libs attempted to use a keytab file to obtain initial credentials from a KDC, as a preliminary step, it enumerated the set of keys in the keytab to determine which types of keys it possessed. While doing so, it leaked memory. This update adds a krb5_kt_free_entry() call in this loop, and memory leaks no longer occur in the described scenario
