Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:055: kopete

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kopete package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:055 (kopete).


A vulnerability was discovered in versions of kopete, a KDE instant messenger
client, prior to 0.6.2. This vulnerabiliy is in the GnuPG test that permits for
users to send each other GPG-encrypted instant messages. The test passes
encrypted messages to gpg, but does no checking to sanitize the commandline
passed to gpg. This can permit remote users to execute arbitrary code, with the
permissions of the user running kopete, on the local system.
