Description :

The KDE HTML library (kdelibs), as used by Konqueror 3.5.5, does not

schemes by embedding certain HTML tags within a comment in a title
tag, a related issue to CVE-2007-0478. Also affects kdelibs 3.5.6, as
per KDE official advisory.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Update the affected packages.
