Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA240] DSA-240-1 kdegames

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-240-1 kdegames

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The KDE team discovered several vulnerabilities in the K Desktop
Environment. In some instances KDE fails to properly quote parameters
of instructions passed to a command shell for execution. These
parameters may incorporate data such as URLs, filenames and e-mail
addresses, and this data may be provided remotely to a victim in an
e-mail, a webpage or files on a network filesystem or other untrusted
source.
By carefully crafting such data a possible hacker might be able to execute
arbitrary commands on a vulnerable system using the victim's account and
rights. The KDE Project is not aware of any existing exploits of
these vulnerabilities. The patches also provide better safe guards
and check data from untrusted sources more strictly in multiple
places.
For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.2.2-2.2.
The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain KDE packages.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will most probably
not be fixed but new packages for KDE 3.1 for sid are expected for
this year.
We recommend that you upgrade your KDE packages.
