[DSA504] DSA-504-1 heimdal Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-504-1 heimdal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Evgeny Demidov discovered a potential buffer overflow in a Kerberos 4
component of heimdal, a free implementation of Kerberos 5. The
problem is present in kadmind, a server for administrative access to
the Kerberos database. This problem could perhaps be exploited to
cause the daemon to read a negative amount of data which could lead to
unexpected behaviour.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4e-7.woody.9.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.2-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your heimdal and related packages.
