Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 / 11.10 : kdeutils vulnerability (USN-1276-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56919

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Tim Brown discovered that Ark did not properly perform input validation when previewing archive files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted archive file, an attacker could remove files via directory traversal.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected ark package.
