 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:097
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : kdelibs
 Date    : May 6, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 A vulnerability was found in start_kdeinit in KDE 3.5.5 through
 3.5.9 where, if it was installed setuid root, it could allow local
 users to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code
 (CVE-2008-1671).
 
 By default, start_kdeinit is not installed setuid root on Mandriva
 Linux, however updated packages have been patched to correct this
 issue.
