KDE Security Advisory: kpf Directory traversal
Original Release Date: 2002-10-08
1. Systems affected:
kpf of any KDE release between KDE 3.0.1 and KDE 3.0.3a.
kpf is a file sharing utility that can be docked into the

The vulnerable feature has been removed.
Apply the patch listed in section 5 to kdenetwork/kpf, or update
to KDE 3.0.4.
kdenetwork-3.0.4 can be downloaded from
A patch for KDE 3.0.3 is available from
