Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and fixed in kget
(kdenetwork4) :

Directory traversal vulnerability in KGet in KDE SC 4.0.0 through
4.4.3 allows remote attackers to create arbitrary files via directory
traversal sequences in the name attribute of a file element in a
metalink file (CVE-2010-1000).

KGet 2.4.2 in KDE SC 4.0.0 through 4.4.3 does not properly request
download confirmation from the user, which makes it easier for remote
attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a crafted metalink file
(CVE-2010-1511).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance
Program.

The corrected packages solves these problems.
