Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:236 high SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: kdelibs security update 2003-07-30 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-07-14 13:23:34 UTC
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.
