Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

KDE Security Advisory reports :

The default rendering type for a QLabel is QLabel::AutoText, which
uses heuristics to determine whether to render the given content as
plain text or rich text. KSSL and Rekonq did not properly force its
QLabels to use QLabel::PlainText. As a result, if given a certificate
containing rich text in its fields, they would render the rich text.
Specifically, a certificate containing a common name (CN) that has a
table element will cause the second line of the table to be displayed.
This can allow spoofing of the certificate's common name.
