New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.5

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and fixed in kget (kdenetwork4) :

Directory traversal vulnerability in KGet in KDE SC 4.0.0 through 4.4.3 allows remote attackers to create arbitrary files via directory traversal sequences in the name attribute of a file element in a metalink file (CVE-2010-1000).

KGet 2.4.2 in KDE SC 4.0.0 through 4.4.3 does not properly request download confirmation from the user, which makes it easier for remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a crafted metalink file (CVE-2010-1511).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance Program.

The corrected packages solves these problems.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
