Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:612-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-612.html

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated kdelibs packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

kdelibs contains libraries for the K Desktop Environment.

A flaw was discovered affecting Kate, the KDE advanced text editor, and
Kwrite.  Depending on system settings, it may be possible for a local user
to read the backup files created by Kate or Kwrite.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-1920 to
this issue.

Please note this issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 2.1.

Users of Kate or Kwrite should update to these errata packages which
contains a backported patch from the KDE security team correcting this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

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

163130 - CAN-2005-1920 Kate backup file permissions leak
