Date: April 29, 2008
Bugs: #218933
ID: 200804-30

Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in start_kdeinit could possibly allow a local
attacker to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

Background
==========

KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and
Unix-like operating systems. start_kdeinit is a wrapper for kdeinit.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 kde-base/kdelibs < 4.0 *>=3D
3.5.8-r4=

*>=3D 3.5.9-r3=

> 4.0
< 3.5.5

Description
===========

Vulnerabilities have been reported in the processing of user-controlled
data by start_kdeinit, which is setuid root by default.

Impact
======

A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with root
privileges, cause a Denial of Service or send Unix signals to other
processes, when start_kdeinit is setuid root.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=3Dkde-base/kdelibs-3.5.8-r4"
