Updated heimdal packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 25 Aug 2017
Affected Mageia releases : 5
Transit path validation inadvertently caused the previous hop realm to not be added to the transit path of issued tickets. This may, in some cases, enable bypass of capath policy in Heimdal versions 1.5 through 7.2 (CVE-2017-6594). Note, this may break sites that rely on the bug. With the bug some incomplete [capaths] worked, that should not have. These may now break authentication in some cross-realm configurations.
