Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-05-12 13:37:43 UTC
A insufficiency with potential security implications has been found in
Konqueror web browser, shipped with the K Desktop Environment 4. 
Presence of this issue is preventing user(s) from using X.509 digital
certificates for e.g. site / email / code electronic signing.

Upstream bug report:

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-05-12 13:47:12 UTC
This issue affects the versions of the kdebase-4.* package, as shipped
with Fedora release of 9, 10 and devel.

Workaround: To use functionality provided by digital certificates in affected
Fedora releases / packages, please temporarily downgrade to particular
kdebase3-* packages, which don't suffer on this insufficiency.

This issue doesn't affect the versions of the kdebase package, as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 4, or 5.

Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2010-03-22 18:19:35 UTC
We will need to wait on upstream for this one. Once it's fixed there, it will be fixed in Fedora.
