Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Jose Avila III and Robert Tasarz discovered that the KDE HTML library
did not correctly parse HTML comments inside the 'title' tag. By
tricking a Konqueror user into visiting a malicious website, an
attacker could bypass cross-site scripting protections.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected packages.
