Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


A security issue has been found in KDE. This errata provides updates which
resolve these issues.

KDE is a graphical desktop environment for the X Window System.

before passing them to a command shell. This could permit remote
attackers to execute arbitrary commands through carefully crafted URLs,
filenames, or email addresses.

Users of KDE are advised to install the updated packages which contain
backported patches to correct this issue.

Please note that for the Itanium (IA64) architecture only, this update also
