FreeBSD : kdelibs4, rekonq -- input validation failure (6d21a287-fce0-11e0-a828-00235a5f2c9a)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 56587
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
