RHSA-2006-0184: kdelibs Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the kdelibs packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Updated kdelibs packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

kdelibs contains libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

A heap overflow flaw was discovered affecting kjs, the JavaScript
interpreter engine used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE. A possible hacker
could create a malicious web site containing carefully crafted JavaScript
code that would trigger this flaw and possibly lead to arbitrary code
execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the
name CVE-2006-0019 to this issue.

NOTE: this issue does not affect KDE in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 2.1.

Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch from the KDE security team correcting this issue as well
as two bug fixes.
