Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:080: kdenetwork

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdenetwork package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:080 (kdenetwork).


The SuSE security team discovered two vulnerabilities in the KDE lanbrowsing
service during an audit. The LISa network daemon and 'reslisa', a restricted
version of LISa are used to identify servers on the local network by using the
URL type 'lan://' and 'rlan://' respectively. A buffer overflow was discovered
in the lisa daemon that can be exploited by a possible hacker on the local network to
obtain root privilege on a machine running the lisa daemon. Another buffer
overflow was found in the lan:// URL handler, which can be exploited by a remote
attacker to gain access to the victim user's account.
Only Mandrake Linux 9.0 comes with the LISa network daemon
all previous
versions do not contain the network daemon and are as such not vulnerable.
