CLA-2002:525-kdelibs

by Nikola Strahija on September 22nd, 2002 KDE[1] is a very popular graphical desktop environment available for GNU/Linux and other operating systems. A cross site scripting vulnerability[2] has been found in the Konqueror browser which also affects other programs that use the same rendering engine (KHTML).


This vulnerability could allow an attacker to steal cookies and
perform other types of cross site scripting attacks on applications
which use the KHTML rendering engine, such as Konqueror.

The KDE team released an advisory[3] and patches to address this
vulnerability.


SOLUTION
All KDE users, or users of KDE applications which use the KHTML
rendering engine, should upgrade their packages.

Please note that is necessary to restart KDE (or its applications if
another desktop is being used) to close this vulnerability.
