[slackware-security] kdebase, kdelibs (SSA:2007-264-01)

New kdebase packages are available for Slackware 12.0 to fix security issues.

A long URL padded with spaces could be used to display a false URL in
Konqueror's addressbar, and KDM when used with no-password login could
be tricked into logging a different user in without a password. This
is not the way KDM is configured in Slackware by default, somewhat
mitigating the impact of this issue.

More details about the issues may be found here:

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/kdebase-3.5.7-i486-3_slack12.0.tgz:
Patched Konqueror to prevent "spoofing" the URL
(i.e. displaying a URL other than the one associated with the page displayed)
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-3820
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-4224
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-4225
Patched KDM issue: "KDM can be tricked into performing a password-less
login even for accounts with a password set under certain circumstances,
namely autologin to be configured and "shutdown with password"
enabled."

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
