Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:227: kdegraphics

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdegraphics package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:227 (kdegraphics).

Stack overflow in the KFILE JPEG (kfile_jpeg) test in kdegraphics3,
as used by konqueror, digikam, and other KDE image browsers, permits
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption) via a
crafted EXIF section in a JPEG file, which results in an infinite
recursion.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
