Name        : kdelibs
Version     : 3.1.4
Release     : 5
Summary     : K Desktop Environment - Libraries
Description :

kspell (spelling checker), jscript (javascript), kab (addressbook),

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

iDEFENSE identified a vulnerability in the Opera Web Browser that could
allow remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary files. The KDE team
has found that a similar vulnerability exists in KDE.

A flaw in the telnet URL handler can allow options to be passed to the
telnet program which can be used to allow file creation or overwriting.
An attacker could create a carefully crafted link such that when opened by
a victim it creates or overwrites a file in the victims home directory. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CAN-2004-0411 to this issue.
