                    Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Package name: kopete
    Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:055
    Date: May 8th, 2003

    Affected versions: 9.1
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Problem Description:

     A vulnerability was discovered in versions of kopete, a KDE instant
     messenger client, prior to 0.6.2. This vulnerabiliy is in the GnuPG
     plugin that allows for users to send each other GPG-encrypted instant
     messages. The plugin passes encrypted messages to gpg, but does no
     checking to sanitize the commandline passed to gpg. This can allow
     remote users to execute arbitrary code, with the permissions of the
     user running kopete, on the local system.
