Description Ville Skyttä 2006-07-26 20:34:32 UTC

Krusader 1.50-beta1 up to 1.70.0 stores passwords for remote connections in
cleartext in the bookmark file (krbookmarks.xml), which allows attackers to
steal passwords by obtaining the file.

FE[345] and devel affected.

Comment 1 Marcin Garski 2006-07-29 21:54:04 UTC
Thanks for bug report. Bug is fixed in 1.70.1-1. Sorry for such delay in case of
security bug, but I was on holiday.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-07-30 20:01:44 UTC
Did you remember to push FC-5 and devel builds too?  FC-3 and FC-4 are at 1.70.1
but FC-5 and devel still at 1.70.0.

Comment 3 Marcin Garski 2006-07-31 13:59:55 UTC
Yes I did, but I didn't noticed that result files from ppc builder couldn't be
downloaded. I've requeued that two packages and this time everything went fine.
Thanks for pointing out.
