Andrew Tuitt reported that versions of KDE up to and including 3.2.3 create
temporary directories with predictable names. A local attacker could
prevent KDE applications from functioning correctly, or overwrite files

Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-0689
to this issue.

WESTPOINT internet reconnaissance services has discovered that the KDE web
browser Konqueror allows websites to set cookies for certain country
specific secondary top level domains. An attacker within one of the

issue does not affect popular domains such as,, or .com. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0721 to this issue.

A frame injection spoofing vulnerability has been discovered in the
