Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs4 (MDVSA-2010:027)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in kdelibs4 :

KDE KSSL in kdelibs 3.5.4, 4.2.4, and 4.3 does not properly handle a
'�' (NUL) character in a domain name in the Subject Alternative
Name field of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle
attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate
issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to
CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-2702).

The JavaScript garbage collector in WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0,
iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through
2.2.1 does not properly handle allocation failures, which allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML
document that triggers write access to an offset of a NULL pointer.
(CVE-2009-1687).

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0.2, KHTML in kdelibs in KDE, QtWebKit
(aka Qt toolkit), and possibly other products does not properly handle
numeric character references, which allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
application crash) via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2009-1725).

Use-after-free vulnerability in WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before
4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through
2.2.1, Google Chrome 1.0.154.53, and possibly other products, allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and application crash) by setting an
unspecified property of an HTML tag that causes child elements to be
freed and later accessed when an HTML error occurs, related to
recursion in certain DOM event handlers. (CVE-2009-1690).

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and
iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 does not initialize a
pointer during handling of a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) attr
function call with a large numerical argument, which allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document
(CVE-2009-1698).

KDE Konqueror allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) via a large integer value for the length property
of a Select object, a related issue to CVE-2009-1692 (CVE-2009-2537).

The gdtoa (aka new dtoa) implementation in gdtoa/misc.c in libc in
FreeBSD 6.4 and 7.2, NetBSD 5.0, and OpenBSD 4.5 allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large precision
value in the format argument to a printf function, related to an array
overrun. (CVE-2009-0689).

WebKit, as used in Safari before 3.2.3 and 4 Public Beta, on Apple Mac
OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5 before 10.5.7 and Windows allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SVGList object that
triggers memory corruption (CVE-2009-0945).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:ND/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
