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=/conary.rpath.com@rpl:devel//1/3.4.2-3.11-1 References: http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-200... http://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-425 http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20060615-1.txt 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.
