rPath Security Advisory: 2006-0106-1 Published: 2006-06-15 Products: rPath Linux 1 Rating: Major Exposure Level Classification: Local Root Deterministic Information Exposure Updated Versions: kdebase=/ References: Description: KDM allows the user to select the session type for login. This setting is stored in the user home directory. Previous versions of KDM will follow a symbolic link and can thus disclose the contents of any file on the system (such as /etc/shadow) to arbitrary users. KDM is not the default window manager on rPath Linux.
