Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


This erratum provides updated KDE packages that resolve a security issue in
Konquerer.

KDE is a graphical desktop environment for the X Window System.
Konqueror is the file manager for the K Desktop Environment.

George Staikos reported that Konqueror may inadvertently send
authentication credentials to websites other than the intended website in
clear text via the HTTP-referer header. This can occur when authentication
credentials are passed as part of a URL in the form http://
user:password@host/

Users of Konqueror are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported security patch correcting this issue.
