Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:046-3: kdelibs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdelibs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:046-3 (kdelibs).


A problem exists with the kdesu component of kdelibs. It created a
world-readable temporary file to exchange authentication information and delete
it shortly after. This can be abused by a local user to gain access to the X
server and could result in a compromise of the account that kdesu would access.
Update:
Konqueror was unable to view manpages. This update corrects the problem and
further corrections to sound are present for those cards that did not work
properly with the previous update.
