Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A buffer overflow was found in the KDE libraries when converting a
string to a floating point number. If a user or application linked
against kdelibs were tricked into processing crafted input, an
attacker could cause a denial of service (via application crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0689)
It was discovered that the KDE libraries could use KHTML to process an
unknown MIME type. If a user or application linked against kdelibs
were tricked into opening a crafted file, an attacker could
potentially trigger XMLHTTPRequests to remote sites.
Update the affected packages.
