Fedora 17 : kdelibs3-3.5.10-53.fc17 (2013-8689)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66650


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a low-impact security issue in the KDE 3 compatibility (kdelibs3) version of kio_http where it would print passwords contained in HTTP URLs in error and debugging messages (CVE-2013-2074).

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 kdelibs3 package.
