Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:058: 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-2002:058 (kdelibs).


A vulnerability was discovered in KDE's SSL implementation in that it does not
check the basic constraints on a certificate and as a result may accept
certificates as valid that were signed by an issuer who is not authorized to do
so. This can lead to Konqueror and other SSL- enabled KDE software falling
victim to a man-in-the-middle attack without being aware of the invalid
certificate. This will trick users into thinking they are on a secure connection
with a valid site when in fact the site is different from that which they
intended to connect to.
This is fixed in KDE 3.0.3, and the KDE team provided a patch for KDE 2.2.2.
This patch has been applied to the following packages.
After upgrading kdelibs, you must restart KDE in order for the fix to work.
