FreeBSD : kdelibs -- konqueror cross-domain cookie injection (2797b27a-f55b-11d8-81b0-000347a4fa7d)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

According to a KDE Security Advisory :

WESTPOINT internet reconnaissance services alerted the KDE security
team that the KDE web browser Konqueror allows websites to set cookies
for certain country specific secondary top level domains.

Web sites operating under the affected domains can set HTTP cookies in
such a way that the Konqueror web browser will send them to all other
web sites operating under the same domain. A malicious website can use
this as part of a session fixation attack. See e.g.
http://www.acros.si/papers/session_fixation.pdf

Affected are all country specific secondary top level domains that use
more than 2 characters in the secondary part of the domain name and
that use a secondary part other than com, net, mil, org, gov, edu or
int. Examples of affected domains are .ltd.uk, .plc.uk and .firm.in

It should be noted that popular domains such as .co.uk, .co.in and
.com are NOT affected.
