Title: KDE Personal Information Management Suite Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (GLSA 200404-02)
Date: April 06, 2004
KDE-PIM may be vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow attack that may allow unauthorized access to an affected system.
KDE-PIM is an application suite designed to manage mail, addresses, appointments, and contacts.
Vulnerable: <= 3.1.4
Unaffected: >= 3.1.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
A buffer overflow may occur in KDE-PIM's VCF file reader when a maliciously crafted VCF file is opened by a user on a vulnerable system.
A remote attacker may unauthorized access to a user's personal data or execute commands with the user's privileges.
A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are advised to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.
KDE users should upgrade to version 3.1.5 or later:
|# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=kde-base/kde-3.1.5"
# emerge ">=kde-base/kde-3.1.5"
