Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:085: 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-2005:085 (kdelibs).



A buffer overflow in the PCX decoder of kimgio was discovered by Bruno Rohee.
If a possible hacker could trick a user into loading a malicious PCX image with any
KDE application, he could cause the execution of arbitrary code with the
rights of the user opening the image.

The provided packages have been patched to correct this issue.

In addition, the LE2005 packages contain fixes to configuring email into
kbugreport, fixing a KDE crasher bug, fixing a kicondialog bug, a KHTML bug,
and a knewsticker export symbol problem.
