    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.
    
    CVE-2013-2074
    
        It was discovered that KIO would show web authentication
        credentials in some error cases.
    
    For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
    4:4.8.4-4+deb7u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kde4libs packages.
