    Package        : heimdal
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-11103
    Debian Bug     : 868208
    
    Jeffrey Altman, Viktor Dukhovni, and Nicolas Williams reported that
    Heimdal, an implementation of Kerberos 5 that aims to be compatible with
    MIT Kerberos, trusts metadata taken from the unauthenticated plaintext
    (Ticket), rather than the authenticated and encrypted KDC response. A
    man-in-the-middle attacker can use this flaw to impersonate services to
    the client.
    
    See https://orpheus-lyre.info/ for details.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.6~rc2+dfsg-9+deb8u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.1.0+dfsg-13+deb9u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.4.0.dfsg.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your heimdal packages.
