Fedora 10 : kdelibs3-3.5.10-13.fc10 (2009-8020)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes several security issues in the KDE 3 compatibility
version of KHTML (CVE-2009-1725, CVE-2009-1690, CVE-2009-1687,
CVE-2009-1698, CVE-2009-2537) which may lead to a denial of service or
potentially even arbitrary code execution. In addition, the package
was fixed to build with the latest version of automake, and the
following fixes and improvements were merged from the Fedora 11
package: * slight speedup to /etc/profile.d/kde.sh,

- fixed unowned directories, * fixed harmless (as the file
contents match) file conflicts with KDE 4.2.x, * fixed
build with GCC 4.4 (but this package is built with
Fedora 10's GCC 4.3.2), * moved Qt Designer plugins to
the runtime package as they can be needed at runtime
(e.g. by PyKDE programs), * kdelibs3-apidocs is now a
noarch subpackage.

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.
