Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA459] DSA-459-1 kdelibs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-459-1 kdelibs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A vulnerability was discovered in KDE where the path restrictions on
cookies could be bypassed using encoded relative path components
(e.g., "/../"). This means that a cookie which should only be sent by
the browser to an application running at /app1, the browser could
inadvertently include it with a request sent to /app2 on the same
server.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in kdelibs version 4:2.2.2-6woody3 and kdelibs-crypto version
4:2.2.2-13.woody.9.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem was fixed in kdelibs
version 4:3.1.3-1.
We recommend that you update your kdelibs and kdelibs-crypto packages.
