Description Josh Bressers 2004-12-20 20:07:21 UTC
Two flaws in the Konqueror webbrowser make it possible to by pass the
sandbox environment which is used to run Java-applets.  One flaw
allows access to restricted Java classes via JavaScript, making it
possible to escalate the privileges of the Java-applet.  The other
problem is that Konqueror fails to correctly restrict access to
certain Java classes from the Java-applet itself.

See http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20041220-1.txt for the
full advisory.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2004-12-20 20:08:10 UTC
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2005-02-03 16:44:57 UTC
There're many API changes between 3.1 and 3.2 in KJAS. Backporting is
not possible. Disable jave is a workaround ATM, which we should
probably mention in the errata. I close it as WONTFIX
