       An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.
       This update for libheimdal fixes the following issues:
       libheimdal was updated to version 7.7.0:
       + Bug fixes:
         - PKCS#11 hcrypto back-end:
           + initialize the p11_module_load function list
           + verify that not only is a mechanism present but that its mechanism
             info states that it offers the required encryption, decryption or
             digest services
         - krb5:
           + Starting with 7.6, Heimdal permitted requesting authenticated
             anonymous tickets. However, it did not verify that a KDC in fact
             returned an anonymous ticket when one was requested.
           + Cease setting the KDCOption reaquest_anonymous flag when issuing
             S4UProxy (constrained delegation) TGS requests.
           + when the Win2K PKINIT compatibility option is set, do not require
             krbtgt otherName to match when validating KDC certificate.
           + set PKINIT_BTMM flag per Apple implementation
           + use memset_s() instead of memset()
         - kdc:
           + When generating KRB5SignedPath in the AS, use the reply client name
             rather than the one from the request, so validation will work
             correctly in the TGS.
           + allow checksum of PA-FOR-USER to be HMAC_MD5. Even if TGT used an
             enctype with a different checksum. Per [MS-SFU] 2.2.1 PA-FOR-USER
             the checksum is always HMAC_MD5, and that's what Windows and MIT
             clients send. In Heimdal both the client and kdc use instead the
             checksum of the TGT, and therefore work with each other but Windows
             and MIT clients fail against Heimdal KDC. Both Windows and MIT KDC
             would allow any keyed checksum to be used so Heimdal client work
             fine against it. Change Heimdal KDC to allow HMAC_MD5 even for non
             RC4 based TGT in order to support per-spec clients.
           + use memset_s() instead of memset()
           + Detect Heimdal 1.0 through 7.6 clients that issue S4UProxy
             (constrained delegation) TGS Requests with the request anonymous
             flag set. These requests will be treated as S4UProxy requests and
             not anonymous requests.
         - HDB:
           + Set SQLite3 backend default page size to 8KB.
           + Add hdb_set_sync() method
         - kadmind:
           + disable HDB sync during database load avoiding unnecessary disk i/o.
         - ipropd:
           + disable HDB sync during receive_everything. Doing an fsync
             per-record when receiving the complete HDB is a performance
             disaster. Among other things, if the HDB is very large, then one
             slave receving a full HDB can cause
             other slaves to timeout and, if HDB write activity is high enough to
       cause iprop log truncation, then also need full syncs, which leads to a
       cycle of full syncs for all slaves until HDB write activity drops.
       Allowing the iprop log to be larger helps, but improving
       receive_everything() performance helps even more.
         - kinit:
           + Anonymous PKINIT tickets discard the realm information used to
             locate the issuing AS. Store the issuing realm in the credentials
             cache in order to locate a KDC which can renew them.
           + Do not leak the result of krb5_cc_get_config() when determining
             anonymous PKINIT start realm.
         - klist:
           + Show transited-policy-checked, ok-as-delegate and anonymous flags
             when listing credentials.
         - tests:
           + Regenerate certs so that they expire before the 2038 armageddon so
             the test suite will pass on 32-bit
             operating systems until the underlying issues can be resolved.
         - documentation:
           + rename verify-password to verify-password-quality
           + hprop default mode is encrypt
           + kadmind "all" permission does not include "get-keys"
           + verify-password-quality might not be stateless
       Version 7.6.0:
       + Security (#555):
         - CVE-2018-16860 Heimdal KDC: Reject PA-S4U2Self with unkeyed checksum
           When the Heimdal KDC checks the checksum that is placed on the
       S4U2Self packet by the server to protect the requested principal against
       modification, it does not confirm that the checksum algorithm that
       protects the user name (principal) in the request is keyed. This allows a
       man-in-the-middle attacker who can intercept the request to the KDC to
       modify the packet by replacing the user name (principal) in the request
       with any desired user name (principal) that exists in the KDC and replace
       the checksum protecting that name with a CRC32 checksum (which requires no
       prior knowledge to compute). This would allow a S4U2Self ticket requested
       on behalf of user name (principal) This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to any service to be
       changed to a S4U2Self ticket with a user name (principal) of
       This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This ticket would then contain the PAC of the
       modified user name (principal).
         - CVE-2019-12098, client-only:
           RFC8062 Section 7 requires verification of the PA-PKINIT-KX key
       exchange when anonymous PKINIT is used. Failure to do so can permit an
       active attacker to become a man-in-the-middle.
       + Bug fixes:
         - Happy eyeballs: Don't wait for responses from known-unreachable KDCs.
         - kdc:
           + check return copy_Realm, copy_PrincipalName, copy_EncryptionKey
         - kinit:
           + cleanup temporary ccaches
           + see man page for "kinit --anonymous" command line syntax change
         - kdc:
           + Make anonymous AS-requests more RFC8062-compliant. Updated expired
             test certificates
       + Features:
         - kuser: support authenticated anonymous AS-REQs in kinit
         - kdc: support for anonymous TGS-REQs
         - kgetcred support for anonymous service tickets
         - Support builds with OpenSSL 1.1.1
