Description :

Maksim Orlovich discovered that kjs, the Javascript interpreter engine
used by Konqueror and other parts of KDE, did not sufficiently verify
the validity of UTF-8 encoded URIs. Specially crafted URIs could
trigger a buffer overflow. By tricking an user into visiting a
web site with malicious JavaScript code, a remote attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code with user rights.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- kdelibs-3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- kdelibs-bin-3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- kdelibs-data-3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- kdelibs4-3.4.0-0ubuntu3.5 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- kdelibs4-dev-3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- kdelibs4-doc-3.4.3-0ubuntu2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
