Fedora Update Notification

Name : kdelibs
Version : 3.1.4
Release : 5
Summary : K Desktop Environment - Libraries
Description :
Libraries for the K Desktop Environment:
KDE Libraries included: kdecore (KDE core library), kdeui (user interface), kfm (file manager), khtmlw (HTML widget), kio (Input/Output, networking), kspell (spelling checker), jscript (javascript), kab (addressbook), kimgio (image manipulation).

Update Information:

iDEFENSE identified a vulnerability in the Opera Web Browser that could allow remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary files. The KDE team has found that a similar vulnerability exists in KDE.

A flaw in the telnet URL handler can allow options to be passed to the telnet program which can be used to allow file creation or overwriting. An attacker could create a carefully crafted link such that when opened by a victim it creates or overwrites a file in the victims home directory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0411 to this issue.
