Fedora Core 1 : kdepim-3.1.4-2 (2004-133)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13708


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


The KDE team found a buffer overflow in the file information reader of VCF files. An attacker could construct a VCF file so that when it was opened by a victim it would execute arbitrary commands. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0988 to this issue.

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.


Update the affected kdepim, kdepim-debuginfo and / or kdepim-devel packages.
