Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0576: kdebase

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdebase packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated kdebase packages that resolve a security issue are now available.

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

The kdebase packages provide the core applications for KDE, the K Desktop
Environment.

A flaw was found in KDE where the kdesktop_lock process sometimes
failed to terminate properly. This issue could either block the user's
ability to manually lock the desktop or prevent the screensaver to
activate, both of which could have a security impact for users who rely on
these functionalities.
(CVE-2006-2933)

Please note that this issue only affected Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

All users of kdebase should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a patch to resolve this issue.
