                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory

Package name:           kdelibs
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:064
Date:                   October 9th, 2002
Affected versions:      8.1, 8.2

Problem Description:

 protection, in that it fails to initialize the domains on sub-(i)frames
 correctly.  Because of this, javascript may access any foreign subframe
 which is defined in the HTML source, which can be used to steal cookies
 from the client and allow other cross-site scripting attacks.  This
 also affects other KDE software that uses the KHTML rendering engine.

 This is fixed in KDE 3.0.3a, 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
