  • Name of Program: kdenetwork: Execute arbitrary code/commands - Remote with user interaction
  • Developer website:
  • Thread: Low
  • Overview:

    Updated kdenetwork packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

    The kdenetwork packages contain networking applications for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

    A directory traversal flaw was found in the way KGet, a download manager, handled the "file" element in Metalink files. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted Metalink file that, when opened, would cause KGet to overwrite arbitrary files accessible to the user running KGet. (CVE-2011-1586)

    Users of kdenetwork should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

  • Solution:

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

    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
