[GLSA-200412-16] kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-16
(kdelibs, kdebase: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Daniel Fabian discovered that the KDE core libraries contain a
flaw allowing password disclosure by making a link to a remote file.
When creating this link, the resulting URL contains authentication
credentials used to access the remote file (CAN 2004-1171).
The Konqueror webbrowser allows websites to load webpages into a window
or tab currently used by another website (CVE-2004-1158).


A malicious user could have access to the authentication
credentials of other users depending on the file permissions.
A malicious website could use the window injection vulnerability to
load content in a window apparently belonging to another website.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=kde-base/kdelibs-3.2.3-r4"
All kdebase users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=kde-base/kdebase-3.2.3-r3"

Threat Level: Medium
