SuSE-SA:2003:014: kdelibs/kdelibs3

High Nessus Plugin ID 13785


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SuSE-SA:2003:014 (kdelibs/kdelibs3).

The kdelibs3 (kdelibs for SLES7 based products) package is a core package for the K desktop environment (KDE). The URI handler of the kdelibs3 and kdelibs class library contains a flaw which allows remote attackers to create arbitrary files as the user utilizing the kdelibs3/kdelibs package.
Affected are applications which use the kdelibs3/kdelibs URI handler such as Konqueror or Kmail.
The original KDE advisory can be found at

Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply the update.
