3. Problem description:

The kdelibs package provides libraries for the K Desktop Environment.

Sebastian Krahmer discovered a flaw in dcopserver, the KDE Desktop
Communication Protocol (DCOP) daemon.  A local user could use this flaw to
stall the DCOP authentication process, affecting any local desktop users
and causing a reduction in their desktop functionality.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2005-0396 to this issue.

Users of KDE should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
