GLSA-200412-16 : kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 16003
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-16 (kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Daniel Fabian discovered that the KDE core libraries contain a flaw allowing password disclosure by making a link to a remote file.
When creating this link, the resulting URL contains authentication credentials used to access the remote file (CAN 2004-1171).
The Konqueror webbrowser allows websites to load webpages into a window or tab currently used by another website (CAN-2004-1158).
A malicious user could have access to the authentication credentials of other users depending on the file permissions.
A malicious website could use the window injection vulnerability to load content in a window apparently belonging to another website.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=kde-base/kdelibs-3.2.3-r4' All kdebase users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=kde-base/kdebase-3.2.3-r3'
