    Package        : kde4libs
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-6232
    Debian Bug     : 832620
    
    Andreas Cord-Landwehr discovered that kde4libs, the core libraries
    for all KDE 4 applications, do not properly handle the extraction
    of archives with "../" in the file paths. A remote attacker can
    take advantage of this flaw to overwrite files outside of the
    extraction folder, if a user is tricked into extracting a specially
    crafted archive.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:4.14.2-5+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:4.14.22-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kde4libs packages.
