Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200412-16] kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-16
(kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities)


Daniel Fabian discovered that the KDE core libraries contain a
flaw permiting password disclosure by making a link to a remote file.
When creating this link, the resulting URL contains authentication
credentials used to access the remote file (CAN 2004-1171).
The Konqueror webbrowser permits websites to load webpages into a window
or tab currently used by another website (CVE-2004-1158).

Impact

A malicious user could have access to the authentication
credentials of other users depending on the file permissions.
A malicious website could use the window injection vulnerability to
load content in a window apparently belonging to another website.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
