FreeBSD : heimdal -- bypass of capath policy (40a8d798-4615-11e7-8080-a4badb2f4699)
High Nessus Plugin ID 100565
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionViktor Dukhovni reports :
Commit f469fc6 (2010-10-02) inadvertently caused the previous hop realm to not be added to the transit path of issued tickets. This may, in some cases, enable bypass of capath policy in Heimdal versions 1.5 through 7.2. Note, this may break sites that rely on the bug. With the bug some incomplete [capaths] worked, that should not have. These may now break authentication in some cross-realm configurations.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
