Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-07-14 09:23:34 EDT
George Staikos reported that Konqueror may inadvertently send
authentication credentials to websites other than the intended website in
clear text via the HTTP-referer header when authentication credentials are
passed as part of a URL in the form of http://user:password@host/

We are fixing this with a backported security patch in RHSA-2003:236

Embargoed until July 21st 2003.
