<title>Konqueror: Java sandbox vulnerabilities</title>
The Java sandbox environment in Konqueror can be bypassed to access
arbitrary packages, allowing untrusted Java applets to perform unrestricted
actions on the host system.

<vulnerable range="lt">3.3.2</vulnerable>
KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and
Unix-like Operating Systems. Konqueror is the KDE web browser and file
Konqueror contains two errors that allow JavaScript scripts and Java
applets to have access to restricted Java classes.
<impact type="normal">
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdelibs</code>
