Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for kdelibs RHSA-2011:1364-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdelibs'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'kdelibs'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The kdelibs 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.

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* kdelibs provided its own set of trusted Certificate Authority (CA)
certificates. This update makes kdelibs use the system set from the
ca-certificates package, instead of its own copy. (BZ#743951)

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

Affected Software/OS:
kdelibs 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.
