CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2005:307-01

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 CAN-2005-0396 to this issue.

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