[slackware-security]  kdepim security update (SSA:2004-014-01)

New kdepim packages are available for Slackware 9.0 and 9.1 to
fix a security issue with .VCF file handling.  For Slackware -current,
a complete upgrade to kde-3.1.5 is available.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Wed Jan 14 11:58:58 PST 2004
patches/packages/kdepim-3.1.4-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled with security patch
  post-3.1.4-kdepim-kfile-plugins.diff.  From the KDE advisory:

    The KDE team has found a buffer overflow in the file information reader
    of VCF files.  A carefully crafted .VCF file potentially enables local
    attackers to compromise the privacy of a victim's data or execute
    arbitrary commands with the victim's privileges.
      By default, file information reading is disabled for remote files.
    However, if previews are enabled for remote files, remote attackers may
    be able to compromise the victim's account.

  For more details, see:

  (* Security fix *)
