Background ========== KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix-like Operating Systems. KHTML is the HTML interpreter used in Konqueror and other parts of KDE. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 kde-base/kdelibs < 3.5.5-r8 >= 3.5.5-r8 Description =========== The KHTML code allows for the execution of JavaScript code located inside the "Title" HTML element, a related issue to the Safari error found by Jose Avila. Impact ====== When viewing a HTML page that renders unsanitized attacker-supplied input in the page title, Konqueror and other parts of KDE will execute arbitrary JavaScript code contained in the page title, allowing for the theft of browser session data or cookies. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All KDElibs users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.5-r8" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2007-0537 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0537 [ 2 ] CVE-2007-0478 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0478 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200703-10.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost importance to us. Any security concerns should be addressed to security@gentoo.org or alternatively, you may file a bug at http://bugs.gentoo.org.
