Id Description
74180 KDE kdeutils Ark Traversal Arbitrary File Deletion

KDE kdeutils Ark contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to traverse outside of a restricted path. The issue is due to the program not properly sanitizing user input, specifically directory traversal style attacks (e.g., ../../) supplied via .ZIP files. This directory traversal attack would allow the attacker to access and delete arbitrary files.
