Problem description

Stéphane Bertin discovered a flaw in the pam_krb5 existing_ticket
configuration option where, if enabled and using an existing credential
cache, it was possible for a local user to gain elevated privileges
by using a different, local user's credential cache (CVE-2008-3825).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.

Update:

An updated package for Mandriva Linux 2009.0 is now available.
