Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Heimdal, an implementation of Kerberos 5 that aims to be compatible with MIT Kerberos.
Isaac Boukris and Andrew Bartlett discovered that Heimdal was susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks caused by incomplete checksum validation. Details on the issue can be found in the Samba advisory at https://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2018-16860.html.
