Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

A heap overflow flaw was discovered affecting kjs, the JavaScript
interpreter engine used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE. An
attacker could create a malicious website containing carefully crafted
JavaScript code that would trigger this flaw and possibly lead to
arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project assigned the name CVE-2006-0019 to this issue.

Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch from the KDE security team correcting this issue

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