Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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.

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.
