Description Josh Bressers 2007-01-30 10:35:46 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #225414 +++

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 FC5
