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.
