MDKSA-2006:105: kdebase

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdebase package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:105 (kdebase).



A problem with how kdm manages the ~/.dmrc file was discovered by

Ludwig Nussel. By using a symlink attack, a local user could get kdm

to read arbitrary files on the system, including privileged system

files and those belonging to other users.



The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
