Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs (MDKSA-2005:085)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18274


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A buffer overflow in the PCX decoder of kimgio was discovered by Bruno Rohee. If an attacker could trick a user into loading a malicious PCX image with any KDE application, he could cause the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user opening the image.

The provided packages have been patched to correct this issue.

In addition, the LE2005 packages contain fixes to configuring email into kbugreport, fixing a KDE crasher bug, fixing a kicondialog bug, a KHTML bug, and a knewsticker export symbol problem.


Update the affected packages.
