Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:0465-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0465.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated kdenetwork packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The kdenetwork packages contain networking applications for the K Desktop
Environment (KDE).

A directory traversal flaw was found in the way KGet, a download manager,
handled the "file" element in Metalink files. An attacker could use this
flaw to create a specially-crafted Metalink file that, when opened, would
cause KGet to overwrite arbitrary files accessible to the user running
KGet. (CVE-2011-1586)

Users of kdenetwork should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to resolve this issue. The desktop must be restarted
(log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
