Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs (MDKSA-2006:130)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 23881


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


KDE Konqueror 3.5.1 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) by calling the replaceChild method on a DOM object, which triggers a null dereference, as demonstrated by calling document.replaceChild with a 0 (zero) argument.

This issue does not affect Corporate 3.0.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
