Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA692] DSA-692-1 kdenetwork

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-692-1 kdenetwork

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The KDE team fixed a bug in kppp in 2002 which was now discovered to be
exploitable by iDEFENSE. By opening a sufficiently large number of
file descriptors before executing kppp which is installed setuid root a
local attacker is able to take over privileged file descriptors.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.2-14.7.
The testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distributions are not affected
since KDE 3.2 already contained the correction.
We recommend that you upgrade your kppp package.
