permit remote attackers to create or truncate arbitrary files. The KDE team
has found that a similar vulnerability exists in KDE.


A flaw in the telnet URL handler can permit options to be passed to the
telnet program which can be used to permit file creation or overwriting.
A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted link such that when opened by
