Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0909 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: kdelibs security update 2008-01-09 01:17:18 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2007-02-22 01:02:11 UTC
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.
