Description

The kdelibs and kdelibs3 packages provide libraries for the K DesktopEnvironment (KDE).An input sanitization flaw was found in the KSSL (KDE SSL Wrapper) API. Anattacker could supply a specially-crafted SSL certificate (for example, viaa web page) to an application using KSSL, such as the Konqueror webbrowser, causing misleading information to be presented to the user,possibly tricking them into accepting the certificate as valid.(CVE-2011-3365)Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backportedpatch to correct this issue. The desktop must be restarted (log out, thenlog back in) for this update to take effect.
