1. Problem Description

        From the KDE.org 20021111-1 advisory: The implementation of
        the rlogin protocol in all of the affected systems, and the
        implementation of the telnet protocol in affected KDE 2 systems,
        allows a carefully crafted url in an html page, html email or
        other kio-enabled application to execute arbitrary commands on
        the system using the victim's account on the vulnerable machine.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
