openSUSE Security Update: konversation: security and bugfix release to 1.5.1

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2014:1406-1
Rating: moderate
References: #902670
Cross-References: CVE-2014-8483
Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.2

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


konversation was updated to version 1.5.1, fixing bugs and one security

* Konversation 1.5.1 is a maintenance release containing only bug fixes.
The included changes address several minor behavioral defects and a
low-risk DoS security defect in the Blowfish ECB support. The KDE
Platform version dependency has increased to v4.9.0 to gain access to
newer Qt socket transport security flags.
* Fixed a bug causing wildcards in command alias replacement patterns not
to be expanded.
* Fixed a bug causing auto-joining of channels not starting in # or & to
sometimes fail because the auto-join command was generated before we got
the CHANTYPES pronouncement by the server.
* Added a size sanity check for incoming Blowfish ECB blocks. The blind
assumption of incoming blocks being the expected 12 bytes could lead to
a crash or up to 11 byte information leak due to an out-of-bounds read.
* Enabling SSL/TLS support for connections will now advertise the
protocols Qt considers secure by default, instead of being hardcoded to
* Fixed the bundled 'sysinfo' script not coping with empty lines in
* Made disk space info in the bundled 'sysinfo' script more robust by
forcing the C locale for 'df'.
* Added an audio player type hint for Cantata to the bundled 'media'
* Fixed some minor comparison logic errors turned up by static analysis.
* Konversation now depends on KDE Platform v4.9.0 or higher.
