I don't know about computer accounts, but this DoS is not possible if
you are using service principals. Active Directory doesn't allow login
for service principals, and keytab are only useful to decrypt tickets.
Making an ldap query to AD, you can get things like

dNSHostName: sist03lnx.domain.com
userPrincipalName: HOST/sist03lnx@DOMAIN.COM
servicePrincipalName: HTTP/sist03lnx.domain.com
servicePrincipalName: HTTP/sist03lnx

In this case, only HOST/sist03lnx keytab works with `kinit -k`. If you
attempt to get a TGT with the other principals, you get nothing.
