MDKSA-2007:009: kdenetwork Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the kdenetwork package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:009 (kdenetwork).

KsIRC 1.3.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via a long PRIVMSG string when connecting to an Internet Relay
Chat (IRC) server, which causes an assertion failure and results in a
NULL pointer dereference.
Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
