The MIT Kerberos Team is proud to announce the availability of MIT
Kerberos V5 Release 1.0.2.  This release is a bug-fix release only;
there are no feature enhancements over the 1.0 patchlevel 1 release.
The following bugs were fixed:

* A bug in the gssapi-rpc library that prevents an rpc server from
handling more than two simultaneous connections

* A potential security vulnerability in telnetd that may allow a
remote user to gain root privileges on systems with a broken tgetent()
library function

Getting Kerberos V5 1.0.2

The simplest way to get the new patchlevel 1 release is via the Web.
Use the following URL:


Alternatively, you may retrieve the release using FTP:

        FTP to athena-dist.mit.edu, in /pub/kerberos.  Get the file
        README.KRB5-1.0.2.  It will contain instructions on how to
        obtain the 1.0.2 release.
