One can argue that doing so may compromise security, however, we are under the impression that changing this value only boost the performance, it does not fix or make your Windows more or less secure.
Please review the following articles to get your attention on this matter:

Beginning with Windows Server 2003 SP2, you can turn off PAC verification for services. To do this, add the ValidateKdcPacSignature registry entry to the following registry subkey:

You must restart the Windows Server if you change this value
