    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Heimdal, an implementation of
    Kerberos 5 that aims to be compatible with MIT Kerberos.
    
    CVE-2018-16860
    
        Isaac Boukris and Andrew Bartlett discovered that Heimdal was
        susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks caused by incomplete
        checksum validation. Details on the issue can be found in the Samba
        advisory at https://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2018-16860.html
    
    CVE-2019-12098
    
        It was discovered that failure of verification of the PA-PKINIT-KX key
        exchange client-side could permit to perform man-in-the-middle attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.1.0+dfsg-13+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your heimdal packages.
