Description

The KDE SSL Wrapper (KSSL) API in KDE SC 4.6.0 through 4.7.1, and possibly earlier versions, does not use a certain font when rendering certificate fields in a security dialog, which allows remote attackers to spoof the common name (CN) of a certificate via rich text.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-kdelibs
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-kdelibs-apidocs
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-kdelibs-common
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-kdelibs-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
