Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Critical: kdelibs security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2009:1601-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1601.html

CVE Names: CVE-2009-0689
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated kdelibs packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

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

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the kdelibs string to floating point
conversion routines. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could crash
Konqueror or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running Konqueror. (CVE-2009-0689)

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
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

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

539784 - CVE-2009-0689 kdelibs remote array overrun
