Description

KGet 2.4.2 in KDE SC 4.0.0 through 4.4.3 does not properly request download confirmation from the user, which makes it easier for remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a crafted metalink file.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-kget

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.
