Synopsis
========

KDE-PIM may be vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow attack that may
allow unauthorized access to an affected system.

Background
==========

KDE-PIM is an application suite designed to manage mail, addresses,
appointments, and contacts.

Affected packages
=================

Description
===========

A buffer overflow may occur in KDE-PIM's VCF file reader when a
maliciously crafted VCF file is opened by a user on a vulnerable
system.

Impact
======

execute commands with the user's privileges.

Workaround

A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are
advised to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.
