Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for kdelibs and kdelibs3 RHSA-2011:1385-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdelibs and kdelibs3'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdelibs and kdelibs3'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The kdelibs and kdelibs3 packages provide libraries for the K Desktop
Environment (KDE).

An input sanitization flaw was found in the KSSL (KDE SSL Wrapper) API. An
attacker could supply a specially-crafted SSL certificate (for example, via
a web page) to an application using KSSL, such as the Konqueror web
browser, causing misleading information to be presented to the user,
possibly tricking them into accepting the certificate as valid.
(CVE-2011-3365)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported
patch to correct this issue. The desktop must be restarted (log out, then
log back in) for this update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
kdelibs and kdelibs3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
