  Konqueror Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability
------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY

Konqueror's cross Site scripting protection fails to initialize the
domains on sub-(i)frames correctly. As a result, JavaScript can access any
foreign subframe that is defined in the HTML source.

DETAILS

Vulnerable systems:
 * KDE version 2.2.2
 * KDE versions 3.0 - 3.0.3

Impact:
Users of Konqueror and other KDE software that uses the KHTML rendering
engine may fall victim of a cookie stealing and other cross-site scripting
attacks.

Solution:
Apply the appended patch to kdelibs, update to the kdelibs-3.0.3a or, as a
workaround, disable JavaScript or cookies.

kdelibs-3.0.3a can be downloaded from:
<http://download.kde.org/stable/3.0.3>
http://download.kde.org/stable/3.0.3 : 02627f595af113f7d544561a7ff6ec85
kdelibs-3.0.3a.tar.bz2
