Description Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2013-05-09 07:32:22 UTC
Please stabilize kde-base/kdelibs-4.10.2-r1 on amd64, ppc, ppc64, x86
No arches cc'ed, sec team please take care of that

From the closed kde-packagers ml (which is why this is initially restricted dev-only, can imho be removed in a few days):



You might consider hot-patching your kdelibs with this.
The code that conceivably might display a user password has been in kdelibs since 2009-07-08
Probably means whatever kdelibs 4.x you are shipping needs this fix.

should this bug be closed? <kde-base/kdelibs-4.10.2-r1 is not in tree anymore.

It'll eventually be closed when the GLSA is sent out.

CVE-2013-2074 (
  kioslave/http/http.cpp in KIO in kdelibs 4.10.3 and earlier allows attackers
  to discover credentials via a crafted request that triggers an "internal
  server error," which includes the username and password in an error message.
