Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-06-03 04:57:02 EDT
Versions of KDE 2.2.2 and earlier have a vulnerability in their SSL
implementation that makes it possible for users of Konqueror and other SSL
enabled KDE software to fall victim to a man-in-the-middle attack. 

Users of KDE should upgrade to the erratum packages currently in progress which
will contain KDE 2.2.2 with a backported patch to correct this vulnerability.
