Description Josh Bressers 2007-02-21 20:02:11 EST
The KDE HTML library (kdelibs), as used by Konqueror 3.5.5, does not properly
parse HTML comments, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks and bypass some XSS protection schemes by embedding
certain HTML tags within a comment in a title tag, a related issue to CVE-2007-0478.
