Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

iDEFENSE identified a vulnerability in the Opera Web Browser that
could allow remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary files.
The KDE team has found that a similar vulnerability exists in KDE.

A flaw in the telnet URL handler can allow options to be passed to the
telnet program which can be used to allow file creation or
overwriting. An attacker could create a carefully crafted link such
that when opened by a victim it creates or overwrites a file in the
victims home directory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0411 to this

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
