Synopsis
========

Heimdal contains cross-realm vulnerability allowing someone with
control over a realm to impersonate anyone in the cross-realm trust
path.

Background

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
app-crypt/heimdal <= 0.6.0 >= 0.6.1

Description
===========

Heimdal does not properly perform certain consistency checks for
cross-realm requests, which allows remote attackers with control of a
realm to impersonate others in the cross-realm trust path.

Impact

Remote attackers with control of a realm may be able to impersonate
other users in the cross-realm trust path.

Workaround
==========

A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are
advised to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.

Resolution
==========

Heimdal users should upgrade to version 0.6.1 or later:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=app-crypt/heimdal-0.6.1"
