Updated kdelibs packages that resolve several security flaws are
now available for CentOS Linux 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
The kdelibs package provides libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).
Two cross-site-scripting flaws were found in the way Konqueror processes
certain HTML content. This could result in a malicious attacker presenting
misleading content to an unsuspecting user. (CVE-2007-0242, CVE-2007-0537)
A flaw was found in the way Konqueror handled certain FTP PASV commands.
A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to perform a rudimentary
port-scan of machines behind a user's firewall. (CVE-2007-1564)
Two Konqueror address spoofing flaws have been discovered. It was
possible for a malicious website to cause the Konqueror address bar to
display information which could trick a user into believing they are at a
different website than they actually are. (CVE-2007-3820, CVE-2007-4224)
Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
