Description

A vulnerability was discovered in KDE's SSL implementation in that it does not check the basic constraints on a certificate and as a result may accept certificates as valid that were signed by an issuer who is not authorized to do so. This can lead to Konqueror and other SSL- enabled KDE software falling victim to a man-in-the-middle attack without being aware of the invalid certificate. This will trick users into thinking they are on a secure connection with a valid site when in fact the site is different from that which they intended to connect to.

This is fixed in KDE 3.0.3, and the KDE team provided a patch for KDE 2.2.2. This patch has been applied to the following packages.

After upgrading kdelibs, you must restart KDE in order for the fix to work.
