Bug 1046421 - Do not disclose the system hostname via NTLM handler. r=honzab The hostname here is matched on the AD DC to the userWorkstations attribute, however this is on a total trust basis in terms of what the client specifies here. The impact of this patch is that a user who is restricted by this attribute to log on to only certain (Windows, in reality) workstations, may not be able to perform a manual NTLM logon to an intranet site, unless they set network.generic-ntlm-auth.workstation to the name of their workstation (actually, any host in that list). The default value is set to WORKSTATION. This patch was originally written by Andrew Bartlett, and modified by Douglas Bagnall following review feedback from Honza Bambas and Tim Brown.
