Description

Updated kdelib and kdebase packages that resolve several security issues are now available.

The kdelibs packages include libraries for the K Desktop Environment. The kdebase packages include core applications for the K Desktop Environment.

Secunia Research discovered a window injection spoofing vulnerability affecting the Konqueror web browser. This issue could allow a malicious website to show arbitrary content in a different browser window. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-1158 to this issue.

A bug was discovered in the way kioslave handles URL-encoded newline (%0a) characters before the FTP command. It is possible that a specially crafted URL could be used to execute any ftp command on a remote server, or potentially send unsolicited email. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-1165 to this issue.

A bug was discovered that can crash KDE screensaver under certain local circumstances. This could allow an attacker with physical access to the workstation to take over a locked desktop session. Please note that this issue only affects Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-0078 to this issue.

All users of KDE are advised to upgrade to this updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
