Package        : kde4libs
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-6410 CVE-2017-8422
Debian Bug     : 856890

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in kde4libs, the core libraries
for all KDE 4 applications. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2017-6410

    Itzik Kotler, Yonatan Fridburg and Amit Klein of Safebreach Labs
    reported that URLs are not sanitized before passing them to
    FindProxyForURL, potentially allowing a remote attacker to obtain
    sensitive information via a crafted PAC file.

CVE-2017-8422

    Sebastian Krahmer from SUSE discovered that the KAuth framework
    contains a logic flaw in which the service invoking dbus is not
    properly checked. This flaw allows spoofing the identity of the
    caller and gaining root privileges from an unprivileged account.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:4.14.2-5+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:4.14.26-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your kde4libs packages.
