Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs (MDKSA-2007:031)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 24644


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Konqueror 3.5.5 does not properly parse HTML comments in title tags, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and bypass some XSS protection schemes by embedding certain HTML tags within a comment, a related issue to CVE-2007-0478.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
