Risk 4 : Red Hat Local Checks

Updated kdelibs packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

kdelibs contains libraries for the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

A heap overflow flaw was discovered affecting kjs, the JavaScript interpreter engine used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE. An attacker could create a malicious web site containing carefully crafted JavaScript code that would trigger this flaw and possibly lead to arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0019 to this issue.

NOTE: this issue does not affect KDE in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 2.1.
