CVE-2004-1145 to this issue.

A flaw was discovered in the FTP kioslave. KDE applications such as
Konqueror could be forced to execute arbitrary FTP commands via a carefully

victim visits a malicious web site. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-1165 to this issue.
