[DSA948] DSA-948-1 kdelibs Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-948-1 kdelibs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Maksim Orlovich discovered that the kjs Javascript interpreter, used
in the Konqueror web browser and in other parts of KDE, performs
insufficient bounds checking when parsing UTF-8 encoded Uniform Resource
Identifiers, which may lead to a heap based buffer overflow and the
execution of arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.2-6.4
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your kdelibs package.
