Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs4 (MDVSA-2010:028)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

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
\'\0\' (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).

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).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
