Problem description

Corsaire discovered that a number of HTTP user agents contained a flaw in how they handle cookies. This flaw could allow an attacker to avoid the path restrictions specified by a cookie's originator. According to their advisory: "The cookie specifications detail a path argument that can be used to restrict the areas of a host that will be exposed to a cookie. By using standard traversal techniques this functionality can be subverted, potentially exposing the cookie to scrutiny and use in further attacks." This issue was fixed in KDE 3.1.3; the updated packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
