GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : heimdal
SUMMARY : remote command execution
EXPLOIT : remote
DATE : 2002-10-14 15:30 UTC

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

- From www.pdc.kth.se/heimdal:

Kf and kfd are used to forward credentials in a stand-alone fashion.
Work on them never really finished, and in releases earlier than
Heimdal 0.5 they had multiple security issues, including possible
buffer overruns. Their use has never been recommended.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
app-crypt/heimdal-0.4e and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge heimdal
emerge clean
