FreeBSD : Incorrect cross-realm trust handling in Heimdal (bfb36941-84fa-11d8-a41f-0020ed76ef5a)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Heimdal does not correctly validate the `transited' field of Kerberos
tickets when computing the authentication path. This could allow a
rogue KDC with which cross-realm relationships have been established
to impersonate any KDC in the authentication path.
