                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           kdeedu
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:159
 Date:                   September 6th, 2005

 Affected versions:      10.1, 10.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several tempfile 
 handling related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml, a conversion script 
 for kvoctrain. This vulnerability was initially discovered by Javier 
 Fernández-Sanguino Peña.
 
 The script uses known filenames in /tmp which allow an local attacker 
 to overwrite files writeable by the user (manually) invoking the 
 conversion script.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
