Debian Security Advisory DSA-1867-1                  security@debian.org

Package        : kdelibs                
Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2009-1690 CVE-2009-1698 CVE-2009-1687
Debian Bugs    : 534952

Several security issues have been discovered in kdelibs, core libraries
from the official KDE release. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2009-1690

It was discovered that there is a use-after-free flaw in handling
certain DOM event handlers. This could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code, when visiting a malicious website.

CVE-2009-1698

It was discovered that there could be an uninitialised pointer when
handling a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) attr function call. This could
lead to the execution of arbitrary code, when visiting a malicious
website.

CVE-2009-1687

It was discovered that the JavaScript garbage collector does not handle
allocation failures properly, which could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code when visiting a malicious website.


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-0lenny2.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch2.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems will be fixed soon.


We recommend that you upgrade your kdelibs packages.


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.
