Fedora 13 : kdelibs-4.5.5-2.fc13 (2011-5183)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53497


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to HTML injection into the error pages that are displayed when it fails to fetch the requested URL. This could allow an arbitrary website to be spoofed.

The new package fixes this security issue. For more infos please take a look at http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20110411-1.txt

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.


Update the affected kdelibs package.
