Debian Linux Security Advisory 4494-1 - Dominik Penner discovered that KConfig, the KDE configuration settings framework, supported a feature to define shell command execution in .desktop files. If a user is provided with a malformed .desktop file (e.g. if it's embedded into a downloaded archive and it gets opened in a file browser) arbitrary commands could get executed. This update removes this feature.

Package : kconfig
CVE ID : CVE-2019-14744

Dominik Penner discovered that KConfig, the KDE configuration settings
framework, supported a feature to define shell command execution in
.desktop files. If a user is provided with a malformed .desktop file
(e.g. if it's embedded into a downloaded archive and it gets opened in
a file browser) arbitrary commands could get executed. This update
removes this feature.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
in version 5.28.0-2+deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.54.0-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your kconfig packages.

For the detailed security status of kconfig please refer to
its security tracker page at:
