Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:047: 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-2004:047 (kdelibs).


A vulnerability in the Opera web browser was identified by iDEFENSE
the same
type of vulnerability exists in KDE. The telnet, rlogin, ssh, and mailto URI
handlers do not check for '-' at the beginning of the hostname passed, which
makes it possible to pass an option to the programs started by the handlers.
This can permit remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary files.
The updated packages contain patches provided by the KDE team to fix this
problem.
