Fedora 11 : kdelibs-4.2.4-6.fc11 (2009-8039)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes several security issues in KHTML (CVE-2009-1725,
CVE-2009-1690, CVE-2009-1687, CVE-2009-1698, CVE-2009-0945,
CVE-2009-2537) which may lead to a denial of service or potentially
even arbitrary code execution. In addition, libplasma was fixed to
make Plasmaboard (a virtual keyboard applet) work, and a bug in a
Fedora patch which made builds of the SRPM on single-CPU machines fail
was fixed.

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.
