Description Mark J. Cox 2004-07-28 08:24:01 UTC
Andrew Tuitt reported that versions of KDE up to and including 3.2.3
create temporary directories with predictable names.  A local attacker
could prevent KDE applications from functioning correctly or overwrite
files owned by other users by creating malicious symlinks.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
CAN-2004-0689 to this issue.

This issue is embargoed until August 11th at 1400 UTC

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2004-07-28 08:24:35 UTC
This issue affects RHEL2.1 and RHEL3, updated packages have been built
and are awaiting QA.

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2004-08-12 12:35:03 UTC
We've scrapped those packages and are rebuilding with the frame
injection fix included.

Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2004-08-12 12:38:47 UTC
Embargo is lifted, making this public.
