Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2006-01-12 07:47:45 EST
The KDE security team reported:

A heap overflow flaw was discovered affecting kjs, the Javascript
interpreter engine used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE. An attacker
who is able to execute javascript code could trigger this flaw potentially
leading to arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2006-0019 to this issue.

This issue does not affect RHEL2.1 or RHEL3
