Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA818] DSA-818-1 kdeedu

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-818-1 kdeedu

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that langen2kvhtml from the
kvoctrain package from the kdeedu suite creates temporary files in an
insecure fashion. This leaves them open for symlink attacks.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.3.2-3.sarge.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.4.2-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your kvoctrain package.
