Mandrake: php multiple vulnerabilities fix  18 December 2004 
A number of vulnerabilities in PHP versions prior to 4.3.10 were discovered by Stefan Esser. Some of these vulnerabilities were not deemed to be severe enough to warrant CVE names, however the packages provided, with the exception of the Corporate Server 2.1 packages, include fixes for all of the vulnerabilities, thanks to the efforts of the OpenPKG team who extracted and backported the fixes.
Mandrake: urpmi ssh parallel support fix  17 December 2004

Mandrake: kdelibs & kdebase vulnerability fix  15 December 2004 
Daniel Fabian discovered a potential privacy issue in KDE. When creating a link to a remote file from various applications, including Konqueror, the resulting URL may contain the authentication credentials used to access that remote resource. This includes, but is not limited to, browsing SMB (Samba) shares. Upon further investigation, it was found that the SMB protocol handler also unnecessarily exposed authentication credentials (CAN-2004-1171).
Mandrake: kde various bug fixes  15 December 2004 
A number of KDE-related packages are being released to address a number of bugs in these packages. Updated packages include kdenetwork (which fixes problems in kget, kopete, and krfb), kdepim (which fixes problems in kmail, knode, knotes, and kontact), kwallet (which fixes problems in kwalleditor and kcmlirc), and kdesdk (which fixes a problem in cervisia).
Mandrake: postgresql temporary file vulnerability fix  14 December 2004

Mandrake: libpng invalid zlib header problem fix  14 December 2004 
A problem in version 1.2.6 of the libpng library would cause libpng to write an invalid zlib header within the PNG datastream. This can cause some applications to display the images incorrectly.
