Dear Secunia Research,
SR> The vulnerability is caused by KGet downloading files without the
SR> user's acknowledgment, overwriting existing files of the same name
SR> when displaying a dialog box that allows a user to choose the file to
SR> download out of the options offered by a metalink file.
SR> The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
SR> CVE-2010-1511 for the vulnerability.
Is it same vulnerability with CVE-2010-1000 or different?
(CVE-2010-1000: It was discovered that KGet did not properly perform
input validation when processing metalink files. If a user were tricked
into opening a crafted metalink file, a remote attacker could overwrite
files via directory traversal, which could eventually lead to arbitrary
code execution. )
