The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way the KDE CSS parser handled content for the
CSS 'style' attribute. A remote attacker could create a specially
crafted CSS equipped HTML page, which once visited by an unsuspecting
user, could cause a denial of service (Konqueror crash) or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running Konqueror. (CVE-2009-1698)
The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this
update to take effect.
