Fedora Core 4 : kdeedu-3.4.2-0.fc4.2 (2005-744)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several tempfile
handling related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml, a conversion script
for kvoctrain. The script must be manually invoked.

The script uses known filenames in /tmp which allow an local attacker
to overwrite files writeable by the user invoking the conversion
script.

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.

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.
