MDKSA-2005:159: kdeedu

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdeedu package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:159 (kdeedu).



Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several tempfile handling
related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml, a conversion script for kvoctrain.
This vulnerability was initially discovered by Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña.

The script uses known filenames in /tmp which permit an local attacker to
overwrite files writeable by the user (manually) invoking the conversion
script.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
