Title:RedHat Update for kdenetwork RHSA-2011:0465-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdenetwork'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdenetwork'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The kdenetwork packages contain networking applications for the K Desktop
Environment (KDE).

A directory traversal flaw was found in the way KGet, a download manager,
handled the 'file' element in Metalink files. An attacker could use this
flaw to create a specially-crafted Metalink file that, when opened, would
cause KGet to overwrite arbitrary files accessible to the user running
KGet. (CVE-2011-1586)

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

Affected Software/OS:
kdenetwork on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
