(Red Hat Issues Fix) KDE KGet Contains File Overwrite and Directory Traversal Bugs
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1025430
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1025430
CVE Reference:   CVE-2011-1586   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 21 2011
Impact:   Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in KDE KGet. A remote user can cause files to be downloaded to arbitrary directories on the target system. A remote user can cause certain files to be overwritten on the target system.

A remote user can supply a specially crafted 'name' attribute of the 'file' element of a metalink file. When the metalink file is downloaded, the file will be stored in a directory on the target system that is located outside of the download directory [CVE-2010-1000].

When KGet displays a dialog box to allow the user to choose certain metalink file options, the file will be downloaded after a period of time without user input. The file will overwrite any existing file of the same name [CVE-2010-1511].

Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Research reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can cause files to be downloaded to arbitrary directories on the target system.

A remote user can cause certain files to be overwritten on the target system.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2011-1586 [which was a result of an incomplete upstream fix for CVE-2010-1000].

CVE Names:         CVE-2011-1586 
=====================================================================

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

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
