KDE-PIM may be vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow attack that may allow unauthorized access to an affected system.
|Package||kde-base/kde on all architectures|
|Affected versions||<= 3.1.4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 3.1.5|
KDE-PIM is an application suite designed to manage mail, addresses, appointments, and contacts.
A buffer overflow may occur in KDE-PIM's VCF file reader when a maliciously crafted VCF file is opened by a user on a vulnerable system.
A remote attacker may unauthorized access to a user's personal data or execute commands with the user's privileges.
A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are advised to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.
KDE users should upgrade to version 3.1.5 or later:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv ">=kde-base/kde-3.1.5" # emerge ">=kde-base/kde-3.1.5"
