Fedora 10 : kdelibs3-3.5.10-13.fc10 (2009-8020)

high Nessus Plugin ID 40411
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes several security issues in the KDE 3 compatibility version of KHTML (CVE-2009-1725, CVE-2009-1690, CVE-2009-1687, CVE-2009-1698, CVE-2009-2537) which may lead to a denial of service or potentially even arbitrary code execution. In addition, the package was fixed to build with the latest version of automake, and the following fixes and improvements were merged from the Fedora 11 package: * slight speedup to /etc/profile.d/kde.sh,

- fixed unowned directories, * fixed harmless (as the file contents match) file conflicts with KDE 4.2.x, * fixed build with GCC 4.4 (but this package is built with Fedora 10's GCC 4.3.2), * moved Qt Designer plugins to the runtime package as they can be needed at runtime (e.g. by PyKDE programs), * kdelibs3-apidocs is now a noarch subpackage.

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.

Solution

Update the affected kdelibs3 package.
