Description

KDE Display Manager (KDM) in KDE 3.2.0 up to 3.5.3 allows local users to read arbitrary files via a symlink attack related to the session type for login.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-kdebase3-beagle
  • suse-upgrade-kdebase3-kdm

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.
