Addendum

In the initial (2002-10-25) version of CERT Advisory CA-2002-29, we mistakenly included a reference to Debian Security Advisory DSA-178. This was an error, DSA-178 does not address the vulnerability described in CA-2002-29 and VU#875073. Debian Security Advisory DSA-185 includes the Heimdal fixes in DSA-178 in addition to the fix for the vulnerability described in CA-2002-29 and VU#875073.
