Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:186: 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-2006:186 (kdelibs).

A vulnerability was discovered in the way that Qt handled pixmap images
and the KDE khtml library used Qt in such a way that untrusted
parameters could be passed to Qt, resulting in an integer overflow.
This flaw could be exploited by a remote attacker in a malicious
website that, when viewed by an individual using Konqueror, would cause
Konqueror to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
rights of the user.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
