CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in kdelibs: The gdtoa (aka new dtoa) implementation in gdtoa/misc.c in libc in FreeBSD 6.4 and 7.2, NetBSD 5.0, and OpenBSD 4.5 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large precision value in the format argument to a printf function, related to an array overrun. (CVE-2009-0689) The JavaScript garbage collector in WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 does not properly handle allocation failures, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document that triggers write access to an offset of a NULL pointer. (CVE-2009-1687) Use-after-free vulnerability in WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1, Google Chrome 1.0.154.53, and possibly other products, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) by setting an unspecified property of an HTML tag that causes child elements to be freed and later accessed when an HTML error occurs, related to recursion in certain DOM event handlers. (CVE-2009-1690) WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 does not initialize a pointer during handling of a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) attr function call with a large numerical argument, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document. (CVE-2009-1698) WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0.2, KHTML in kdelibs in KDE, QtWebKit (aka Qt toolkit), and possibly other products does not properly handle numeric character references, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document. (CVE-2009-1725) KDE Konqueror allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large integer value for the length property of a Select object, a related issue to CVE-2009-1692. (CVE-2009-2537) KDE KSSL in kdelibs 3.5.4, 4.2.4, and 4.3 does not properly handle a '\0' (NUL) character in a domain name in the Subject Alternative Name field of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-2702). This update provides a solution to this vulnerability. Affected: Corporate 4.0

Recommendations:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=MDVSA-2009:330

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
