Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225414
CVE-2007-0537 Konqueror improper HTML comment rendering
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:41 EST
A flaw was reported in the way Konqueror processes HTML which contains a comment
used in a certain manner. It is possible to conduct a cross site scripting flaw
on sites that allow a user to enter HTML comments, which Konqueror will then
parse incorrectly, causing the site to display unintended content.

Demo HTML file. This file should not display an alert dialog.
This flaw also affects RHEL3. I was unable to reproduce this flaw on RHEL2.1
I'm lowering the severity of this flaw to low. Dirk Mueller clarified this
flaw. It only affects placing comments in the <title> HTML tags. This
significantly reduces the usefulness of this flaw.
I'm moving this bug to cover RHEL5, which means that it affects RHEL 3, 4, and 5.
Closing as deferred, we may fix this in a future update but do not plan on
fixing due to this issue. Removing flags as it's not approved for RHEL update
at this time.
