Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN115-1 : kdewebdev vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
kdewebdev vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- kdewebdev
- kdewebdev-doc-html
- kfilereplace
- kimagemapeditor
- klinkstatus
- kommander
- kommander-dev
- kxsldbg
- quanta
- quanta-data


Description :

Eckhart Wörner discovered that Kommander opens files from remote and
possibly untrusted locations without user confirmation. Since
Kommander files can contain scripts, this would permit a possible hacker to
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user opening the
file.

The updated Kommander will not automatically open files from remote
locations, and files which do not end with ".kmdr" any more.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- kdewebdev-3.4.0-0ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 5.04)
