Description

Updated kdelibs packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

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

The kdelibs packages provide libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

A flaw was found in the way the KDE CSS parser handled content for the CSS 'style' attribute. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted CSS equipped HTML page, which once visited by an unsuspecting user, could cause a denial of service (Konqueror crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Konqueror. (CVE-2009-1698)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.
