Package : kde4libs CVE ID : CVE-2017-6410 CVE-2017-8422 Debian Bug : 856890

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in kde4libs, the core libraries for all KDE 4 applications. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


Itzik Kotler, Yonatan Fridburg and Amit Klein of Safebreach Labs
reported that URLs are not sanitized before passing them to
FindProxyForURL, potentially allowing a remote attacker to obtain
sensitive information via a crafted PAC file.


Sebastian Krahmer from SUSE discovered that the KAuth framework
contains a logic flaw in which the service invoking dbus is not
properly checked. This flaw allows spoofing the identity of the
caller and gaining root privileges from an unprivileged account.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.14.2-5+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.14.26-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your kde4libs packages.
