Title: KDE KConfig: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201908-07)
A vulnerablity has been found in KDE KConfig that could allow a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.
Provides an advanced configuration system.
Vulnerable: < 5.60.0-r1
Unaffected: >= 5.60.0-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A vulnerability was discovered in KDE KConfig’s handling of .desktop
and .directory files.
An attacker could entice a user to execute a specially crafted .desktop
or .directory file possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All KConfig users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
