CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2007:0909

The kdelibs package provides libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

Two cross-site-scripting flaws were found in the way Konqueror processes certain HTML content. This could result in a malicious attacker presenting misleading content to an unsuspecting user. (CVE-2007-0242, CVE-2007-0537)

A flaw was found in KDE JavaScript implementation. A web page containing malicious JavaScript code could cause Konqueror to crash. (CVE-2007-1308)

A flaw was found in the way Konqueror handled certain FTP PASV commands. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to perform a rudimentary port-scan of machines behind a user's firewall. (CVE-2007-1564)

Two Konqueror address spoofing flaws have been discovered. It was possible for a malicious website to cause the Konqueror address bar to display information which could trick a user into believing they are at a different website than they actually are. (CVE-2007-3820, CVE-2007-4224)

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