Immunix: Security update to kerberos

Author: JT Smith

Posted at Mario Lorenz discovered a possible buffer overflow in the kerberos
gssapi-aware ftpd in the krb5-workstation package that is included
in all versions of Immunix OS. It is believed at this time that
StackGuard prevents the exploitation of this vulnerability; however,
in the absence of an exploit to test against, we recommend that all
users of the kerberos packages update their installation.
