Posted on: 01/20/2006 12:42 PM

A new KDE library vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-245-1 January 20, 2006
kdelibs vulnerability

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)a
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4:3.4.0-0ubuntu3.5 (for Ubuntu 5.04), or 4:3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (for
Ubuntu 5.10). After a standard system upgrade you need to restart
your KDE session to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Maksim Orlovich discovered that kjs, the Javascript interpreter engine
used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE, did not sufficiently verify
the validity of UTF-8 encoded URIs. Specially crafted URIs could
trigger a buffer overflow. By tricking an user into visiting a
web site with malicious JavaScript code, a remote attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
