Description

In kdeconnect-kde (aka KDE Connect) before 20.08.2, an attacker on the local network could send crafted packets that trigger use of large amounts of CPU, memory, or network connection slots, aka a Denial of Service attack.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-kdeconnect-kde
  • suse-upgrade-kdeconnect-kde-lang
  • suse-upgrade-kdeconnect-kde-zsh-completion

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.
