Updated kdepim packages are now available that fix a local buffer
The K Desktop Environment (KDE) is a graphical desktop for the X
Window System. The KDE Personal Information Management (kdepim) suite
helps you to organize your mail, tasks, appointments, and contacts.
The KDE team found a buffer overflow in the file information reader of
VCF files. An attacker could construct a VCF file so that when it was
opened by a victim it would execute arbitrary commands. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2003-0988 to this issue.
Users of kdepim are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages which
contain a backported security patch that corrects this issue.
