    KDE Security Advisory: kpf Directory traversal
    Original Release Date: 2002-10-08
    URL: http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20021008-2.txt

    0. References

    1. Systems affected:

            kpf of any KDE release between KDE 3.0.1 and KDE 3.0.3a.

    2. Overview:
            kpf is a file sharing utility that can be docked into the
            KDE kicker bar. It uses a subset of the HTTP protocol internally
            and acts much similiar to a webserver.

            A feature added in KDE 3.0.1 accidently allowed retrieving any
            file, not limited to the configured shared directory, if it is
            readable by the user kpf runs under.

    3. Impact:
            Files not stored in the shared directory were remotely
    4. Solution:
            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

            http://download.kde.org/stable/3.0.4 :
            9f64e76cc6b922e1bf105099e3bf8205 kdenetwork-3.0.4.tar.bz2

    5. Patch:

            A patch for KDE 3.0.3 is available from
            ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/security_patches :
            2e8ddbb0d75cd63fd534ec001bb5a415 post-3.0.3-kdenetwork-kpf.diff
