Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-23 (KStars: Buffer overflow in fliccd)

Erik Sjolund discovered a buffer overflow in fliccd which is part
of the INDI support in KStars.

Impact :

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute code with
elevated privileges. If fliccd does not run as daemon remote
exploitation of this vulnerability is not possible. KDE as shipped by
Gentoo does not start the daemon in the default installation.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
