    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0184.html
    Issue date:        2006-01-19
    Updated on:        2006-01-19
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux

    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. Summary:
    
    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.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    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.
    
    Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
    backported patch from the KDE security team correcting this issue as well
    as two bug fixes.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
    launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:
    
    up2date
    
    This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
    RPMs being upgraded on your system.
    
    5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
    
    165139 - kdegraphics applications crash when Open or Save dialog is opened
    177618 - CVE-2006-0019 kjs encodeuri/decodeuri heap overflow vulnerability
    178072 - pwMutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
