Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the MIT Kerberos suite.
This release removes triple-DES support in Kerberos IV and cross-realm
authentication in Kerberos IV, as both are known to be insecure. This
release also fixes two denial of service attacks against the Kerberos

All Kerberos users should upgrade to these packages, with the caveat
that organizations relying on Kerberos IV cross-realm authentication
should upgrade to Kerberos 5 first.
