It was discovered that KDE-Libs did not properly handle certain malformed
SVG images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted SVG

arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-0945)

It was discovered that the KDE JavaScript garbage collector did not
properly handle memory allocation failures. If a user were tricked into
viewing a malicious website, an attacker could cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking
the program. (CVE-2009-1687)

It was discovered that KDE-Libs did not properly handle HTML content in the
head element. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an
attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-1690)

It was discovered that KDE-Libs did not properly handle the Cascading Style
Sheets (CSS) attr function call. If a user were tricked into viewing a
malicious website, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2009-1698)
