Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:004-1: kde

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kde package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:004-1 (kde).


Multiple instances of improperly quoted shell command execution exist in KDE 2.x
up to and including KDE 3.0.5. KDE fails to properly quote parameters of
instructions passed to the shell for execution. These parameters may contain
data such as filenames, URLs, email address, and so forth
this data may be
provided remotely to a victim via email, web pages, files on a network
filesystem, or other untrusted sources.
It is possible for arbitrary command execution on a vulnerable system with the
rights of the victim's account.
The code audit by the KDE team resulted in patches for KDE 2.2.2 and KDE 3

version 3.0.5a was released and the KDE team encourages the upgrade. The listed
KDE2 packages have the KDE team's patches applied to provide the fixed code.
Update:
The SRPM for the new arts for Mandrake Linux 9.0 was not linked into the updates
tree. This has been corrected.
