Debian DLA-952-1 : kde4libs security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 100431

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in kde4libs, the core libraries for all KDE 4 applications. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

CVE-2017-6410

Itzik Kotler, Yonatan Fridburg and Amit Klein of Safebreach Labs reported that URLs are not sanitized before passing them to FindProxyForURL, potentially allowing a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information via a crafted PAC file.

CVE-2017-8422

Sebastian Krahmer from SUSE discovered that the KAuth framework contains a logic flaw in which the service invoking dbus is not properly checked. This flaw allows spoofing the identity of the caller and gaining root privileges from an unprivileged account.

CVE-2013-2074

It was discovered that KIO would show web authentication credentials in some error cases.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.8.4-4+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your kde4libs packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
