Fedora Core 4 : kdelibs-3.5.0-0.4.fc4 (2006-050)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20756


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A heap overflow flaw was discovered affecting kjs, the JavaScript interpreter engine used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE. An attacker could create a malicious website containing carefully crafted JavaScript code that would trigger this flaw and possibly lead to arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0019 to this issue.

Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch from the KDE security team correcting 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 kdelibs, kdelibs-debuginfo and / or kdelibs-devel packages.
