Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs (MDKSA-2001:046-3)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A problem exists with the kdesu component of kdelibs. It created a
world-readable temporary file to exchange authentication information
and delete it shortly after. This can be abused by a local user to
gain access to the X server and could result in a compromise of the
account that kdesu would access.

Update :

Konqueror was unable to view manpages. This update corrects the
problem and further corrections to sound are present for those cards
that did not work properly with the previous update.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6
