Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kdelibs security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2009:1128-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1128.html
Issue date: 2009-06-25
CVE Names: CVE-2009-1698
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated kdelibs packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

The kdelibs packages provide libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

A flaw was found in the way the KDE CSS parser handled content for the
CSS "style" attribute. A remote attacker could create a specially-crafted
CSS equipped HTML page, which once visited by an unsuspecting user, could
cause a denial of service (Konqueror crash) or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Konqueror.
(CVE-2009-1698)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported
patch to correct this issue. The desktop must be restarted (log out, then
log back in) for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
