Package        : kdelibs
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0019

Maksim Orlovich discovered that the kjs Javascript interpreter, used
in the Konqueror web browser and in other parts of KDE, performs
insufficient bounds checking when parsing UTF-8 encoded Uniform Resource
Identifiers, which may lead to a heap based buffer overflow and the
execution of arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.2-6.4

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your kdelibs package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
