A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the CSS (Cascading
Style Sheets) parser in kdelibs parsed the location of the source for font
faces. A web page containing malicious content could cause an application
using kdelibs (such as Konqueror) to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

its memory. (CVE-2012-4513)
