Konqueror < 4.4.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5539


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors


This version of Konqueror shipped with an application called 'Kget' which is prone to a security-bypass flaw as well as a directory-traversal flaw. An attacker would need to be able to entice a user into browsing to a malicious website. Successful exploitation would result in the remote site gaining partial access to the filesystem on the client machine.


Upgrade to version 4.4.3 or newer
