Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA518] DSA-518-1 kdelibs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-518-1 kdelibs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

iDEFENSE identified a vulnerability in the Opera web browser that
could be used by remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary
files on the victims machine. The KDE team discovered that a similar
vulnerability exists in KDE.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a carefully crafted
telnet URI which may either create or truncate a file in the victims
home directory. In KDE 3.2 and later versions the user is first
explicitly asked to confirm the opening of the telnet URI.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.2-13.woody.10.
We recommend that you upgrade your KDE libraries.
