Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA660] DSA-660-1 kdebase

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-660-1 kdebase

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

RaphaŽl Enrici discovered that the KDE screensaver can crash under
certain local circumstances. This can be exploited by a possible hacker
with physical access to the workstation to take over the desktop
session.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.2-14.9.
This problem has been fixed upstream in KDE 3.0.5 and is therefore
fixed in the unstable (sid) and testing (sarge) distributions already.
We recommend that you upgrade your kscreensaver package.
