Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS : kde4libs vulnerability (USN-3223-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97658


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


Itzik Kotler, Yonatan Fridburg, and Amit Klein discovered that KDE-Libs incorrectly handled certain PAC files. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive information.

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.


Update the affected kdelibs5-plugins package.
