Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated kdelibs packages that fix a local denial of service issue are now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

The kdelibs package provides libraries for the K Desktop Environment.

Sebastian Krahmer discovered a flaw in dcopserver, the KDE Desktop
Communication Protocol (DCOP) daemon. A local user could use this flaw to
stall the DCOP authentication process, affecting any local desktop users
and causing a reduction in their desktop functionality. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0396 to this issue.

Users of KDE should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
