Konqueror < 4.4.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade to version 4.4.3 or newer
