Debian Security Advisory DSA 804-1 security@debian.org

September 8th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : kdelibs
Vulnerability : insecure permissions
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-1920

KDE developers have reported a vulnerability in the backup file
handling of Kate and Kwrite. The backup files are created with
default permissions, even if the original file had more strict
permissions set. This could disclose information unintendedly.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.2-6.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.4.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your kate package.


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.
