GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200301-11
--------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : kde-2.2.x
SUMMARY : multiple vulnerabilites in KDE
DATE : 2003-01-18 02:47 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

--------------------------------------------------------------------

- From advisory:

"In some instances KDE fails to properly quote parameters of
instructions passed to a command shell for execution.

These parameters may incorporate data such as URLs, filenames and
e-mail addresses, and this data may be provided remotely to a victim
in an e-mail, a webpage or files on a network filesystem or other
untrusted source.

By carefully crafting such data an attacker might be able to
execute arbitary commands on a vulnerable sytem using the victim's
account and privileges.

The KDE Project is aware of several possible exploits of these
vulnerabilities and is releasing this advisory with patches to
correct the issues. The patches also provide better safe guards and
check data from untrusted sources more strictly in multiple places."

INFORMATION REGARDING OTHER ARCHITECTURES THAN X86

Updated kde-2.2.2 ebuilds are currently only marked stable for x86.
If you have succesfully compiled, merged and used kde-2.2.2 on any other
architecture than x86 please report this to kde@gentoo.org.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
kde-base/kde-2.2.x upgrade to kde*-2.2.2-{r1,r2,r4} as follows:

emerge sync
emerge -u \=kde-base/kde-2.2*
emerge clean
