Description

It was discovered that the KIO subsystem of KDE did not properly perform input validation when processing help:// URIs. If a user or KIO application processed a crafted help:// URI, an attacker could trigger JavaScript execution or access files via directory traversal.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
