Mandrake A bug in the way kioslave handles URL-encoded newline (%0a) characters before the FTP command was discovered. Because of this, it is possible that a specially crafted URL could be used to execute any ftp command on a remote server, or even send unsolicited email.

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           kdelibs
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:045
 Date:                   February 17th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1, Corporate 3.0

 Problem Description:

 A bug in the way kioslave handles URL-encoded newline (%0a)
 characters before the FTP command was discovered.  Because of this, it
 is possible that a specially crafted URL could be used to execute any
 ftp command on a remote server, or even send unsolicited email.
 As well, Davide Madrisan discovered that dcopidlng created temporary
 files in an insecure manner.
 The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.
