<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could embed a malicious Java applet in a web page and
entice a victim to view it. This applet can then bypass security
restrictions and execute any command, or access any file with the
rights of the user running Konqueror.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdelibs</code>
</resolution>
