This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-13
(kdebase, kdelibs: Multiple security issues)

KDE contains three security issues:
Insecure handling of temporary files when running KDE applications
outside of the KDE environment
DCOPServer creates temporary files in an insecure manner
The Konqueror browser allows websites to load webpages into a target
frame of any other open frame-based webpage

Impact :

An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to create or overwrite
files with the permissions of another user, compromise the account of users
running a KDE application and insert arbitrary frames into an otherwise
trusted webpage.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version of kdebase.

# emerge -pv '>=kde-base/kdelibs-3.2.3-r1'
