Description

LSAC(v2)
Kerberos is an authentication system which allows clients and services to authenticate to each other with the help of a trusted third party, a Kerberos KDC. This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, when the krb5 client library was waiting for a response from a server, the timeout variable in certain cases became a negative number. Consequently, the client could enter a loop while checking for responses. With this update, the client logic has been modified and the described error no longer occurs. (BZ#1095364) Users of krb5 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
