CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : kde
SUMMARY : PS/PDF file handling vulnerability and other fixes
DATE : 2003-06-30 17:03:00
ID : CLA-2003:668
RELEVANT
RELEASES : 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 KDE is a very popular graphical desktop environment available for
 GNU/Linux and other operating systems.
 
 In several cases, kde applications call the ghostview program to
 handle PS and PDF files in an insecure way (without the
 -DPARANOIDSAFER or -SAFER parameters), which may allow attackers to
 execute commands using crafted PS/PDF files[1,3]. Since these files
 can came from remote or untrusted sources (e-mail, web sites and
 network connections), remote attackers can exploit this vulnerability
 to execute arbitrary commands in the user's context using such
 sources as attack vectors.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
 the name CAN-2003-0204 to this issue[2].
 
 Besides the fix for this vulnerability, the packages include other
 minor bugfixes incorporated in the KDE 3.1.2 version[4] and the fixes
 for the following problems reported in our bugzilla:
 
 - #8229: Problem to mount a CD-ROM as a normal user[5];
 - #8098: KDM default login is broken if KDE is not installed[6];
 - #8190: kmplayer is the default player for all multimedia files[7].
 
 * User of Conectiva Linux 7.0 and 8 are also exposed to this
 vulnerability and can expect updated packages to be provided soon.

SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all KDE users upgrade their packages. Please
 note that after the new packages instalation, you must restart KDE in
 order to run the new version.
