Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Kommander: Insecure remote script execution (GLSA 200504-23)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 22, 2005
Updated: May 20, 2005
Bug(s): #89092
ID: 200504-23

Synopsis

Kommander executes remote scripts without confirmation, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix-like Operating Systems. Kommander is a visual dialog editor and interpreter for KDE applications, part of the kdewebdev package.

Affected Packages

Package: kde-base/kdewebdev
Vulnerable: < 3.3.2-r2
Unaffected: >= 3.3.2-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Kommander executes data files from possibly untrusted locations without user confirmation.

Impact

An attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Kommander.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All kdewebdev users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=kde-base/kdewebdev-3.3.2-r2"
