Debian Security Advisory DSA-1916-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Giuseppe Iuculano
October 23, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : kdelibs
Vulnerability : insufficient input validation
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug : 546212
CVE ID : CVE-2009-2702

Dan Kaminsky and Moxie Marlinspike discovered that kdelibs, core libraries from
the official KDE release, does not properly handle a '\\0' character in a domain
name in the Subject Alternative Name field of an X.509 certificate, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted
certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority.


For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch3

Due to a bug in the archive system, the fix for the stable distribution
(lenny), will be released as version 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-0lenny3 once it is
available.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), and the unstable distribution (sid),
this problem has been fixed in version 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-2.1


We recommend that you upgrade your kdelibs pakcages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
