Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.50659
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2004:022 (kdelibs)
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing an update to kdelibs
announced via advisory MDKSA-2004:022.

Corsaire discovered that a number of HTTP user agents contained a flaw
in how they handle cookies. This flaw could allow an attacker to
avoid the path restrictions specified by a cookie's originator.
According to their advisory:

The cookie specifications detail a path argument that can be used to
restrict the areas of a host that will be exposed to a cookie. By
using standard traversal techniques this functionality can be
subverted, potentially exposing the cookie to scrutiny and use in
further attacks.

This issue was fixed in KDE 3.1.3
the updated packages are patched to
protect against this vulnerability.

Affected versions: 9.1

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
