New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionAccording 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.
Websites operating under the affected domains can set HTTP cookies in such a way that the Konqueror web browser will send them to all other websites operating under the same domain. A malicious website can use this as part of a session fixation attack. See e.g.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
