User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Slackware The telnet, rlogin, ssh and mailto URI handlers in KDE do not do sufficient argument checking, allowing improper passing of arguments.

[slackware-security]  kdelibs (SSA:2004-238-01)

New kdelibs packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1 and -current
to fix security issues with URI handling.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

   http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0411


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Mon May 17 19:31:12 PDT 2004
patches/packages/kdelibs-3.1.4-i486-2.tgz:  Patched URI security
  issues.  According to www.kde.org:
    The telnet, rlogin, ssh and mailto URI handlers in KDE do not
    check for '-' at the beginning of the hostname passed, which
    makes it possible to pass an option to the programs started
    by the handlers.
  For more details, see:
