Debian Security Advisory DSA 361-2 [email protected]

Package : kdelibs-crypto
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0459, CAN-2003-0370

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in kdelibs:

- - CAN-2003-0459: KDE Konqueror for KDE 3.1.2 and earlier does not
remove authentication credentials from URLs of the
"user:password@host" form in the HTTP-Referer header, which could
allow remote web sites to steal the credentials for pages that link
to the sites.

- - CAN-2003-0370: Konqueror Embedded and KDE 2.2.2 and earlier does not
validate the Common Name (CN) field for X.509 Certificates, which
could allow remote attackers to spoof certificates via a
man-in-the-middle attack.

These vulnerabilities are described in the following security
advisories from KDE:

http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20030729-1.txt
http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20030602-1.txt

For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 2.2.2-6woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
kdelibs version 4:3.1.3-1.

We recommend that you update your kdelibs-crypto package.
