FreeBSD : kdelibs4 -- KMail/KIO POP3 SSL Man-in-the-middle Flaw (4a114331-0d24-11e4-8dd2-5453ed2e2b49)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76543
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionRichard J. Moore reports :
The POP3 kioslave used by KMail will accept invalid certificates without presenting a dialog to the user due a bug that leads to an inability to display the dialog combined with an error in the way the result is checked.
This flaw allows an active attacker to perform MITM attacks against the ioslave which could result in the leakage of sensitive data such as the authentication details and the contents of emails.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
