Ubuntu Security Notice USN-420-1
6th February, 2007
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 6.10
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
- Ubuntu 5.10
Jose Avila III and Robert Tasarz discovered that the KDE HTML library
did not correctly parse HTML comments inside the "title" tag. By
tricking a Konqueror user into visiting a malicious website, an attacker
could bypass cross-site scripting protections.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- Ubuntu 6.10:
- kdelibs4c2a 4:3.5.5-0ubuntu3.1
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
- kdelibs4c2a 4:3.5.2-0ubuntu18.2
- Ubuntu 5.10:
- kdelibs4c2 4:3.4.3-0ubuntu2.2
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to
effect the necessary changes.
