                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           kdepim
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:003
 Date:                   January 14th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 9.1, 9.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered in all versions of kdepim as distributed
 with KDE versions 3.1.0 through 3.1.4.  This vulnerability allows for a
 carefully crafted .VCF file to potentially enable a local attacker to
 compromise the privacy of a victim's data or execute arbitrary commands
 with the victim's privileges.  This can also be used by remote
 attackers if the victim enables previews for remote files; however this
 is disabled by default.
 
 The provided packages contain a patch from the KDE team to correct this
 problem.
