Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : kdelibs
Version : 3.3.1
Release : 2.12.FC3
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:

A buffer overflow was found in the kimgio library for KDE 3.3.1. An attacker could create a carefully crafted PCX image in such a way that it would cause kimgio to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-1046 to this issue.

All users of kdelibs should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported security patch to correct these issues.
