Description

Updated kdebase packages that resolve an interaction security issue with Adobe Flash Player are now available. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The kdebase packages provide the core applications for KDE, the K Desktop Environment. These core packages include Konqueror, the web browser and file manager. A problem with the interaction between the Flash Player and the Konqueror web browser was found. The problem could lead to key presses leaking to the Flash Player applet instead of the browser (CVE-2007-2022). Users of Konqueror who have installed the Adobe Flash Player plugin should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a patch provided by Dirk Muller that protects against this issue.
