Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-146: arts

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the arts packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


This erratum provides updated KDE packages to resolve a vulnerability in
the handling of PostScript and PDF files.

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

KDE versions up to and including KDE 3.1.1 have a vulnerability caused by
neglecting to use the -dSAFER option when previewing in Konquerer. An
attacker can prepare a malicious PostScript or PDF file which provides the
attacker with access to the victim's account and rights when the victim
opens this malicious file for viewing, or when the victim browses a
directory containing this malicious file with file previews enabled in the
browser.

This erratum provides packages containing KDE 2.2.2 with backported patches
to correct these issues.
