Description Mark J. Cox 2003-04-14 07:29:40 EDT
KDE versions up to and including KDE 3.1.1 have a vulnerability caused by
-dSAFER not being used when previewing in Konquerer. An attacker can
prepare a malicious PostScript or PDF file which provides the attacker
with access to the victim's account and privileges when the victim opens
this malicious file for viewing or when the victim browses a directory
containing such malicious file and has file previews enabled.
