Bugs

This is a list of grave bugs and common pitfalls surfacing after the release was packaged:

  • KRunner version KDE SC 4.4.0 has a race condition that can allow users at a local console to gain unintended access to a locked machine and the logged-in account. Read the detailed advisory for more information.
  • KDM versions before KDE 4.4.3 have a race condition that allows valid local users to overwrite arbitrary files. Read the detailed advisory for more information.
  • KGet versions up to and including KDE SC 4.4.3 have a directory traversal flaw that can allow maliciously-crafted metalink files to download files to unintended directories. Read the detailed advisory for more information.
  • Konqueror in KDE SC versions up to and including 4.6.1 have a cross-site scripting error that can be exploited to cause a user to be redirected to a malicious site. Read the detailed advisory for more information.

Please check the bug database before filing any bug reports. Also check for possible updates on this page that might describe or fix your problem.
