Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:022 (kdelibs).


Corsaire discovered that a number of HTTP user agents contained a flaw in how
they handle cookies. This flaw could permit a possible hacker to avoid the path
restrictions specified by a cookie's originator. According to their advisory:
'The cookie specifications detail a path argument that can be used to restrict
the areas of a host that will be exposed to a cookie. By using standard
traversal techniques this functionality can be subverted, potentially exposing
the cookie to scrutiny and use in further attacks.'
This issue was fixed in KDE 3.1.3
the updated packages are patched to protect
against this vulnerability.
