Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-10-15 08:54:33 UTC
From oss-security:

1) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to type confusion 
leading to memory disclosure.  The root cause of this is the same
as CVE-2010-0046 reported by Chris Rohlf which affected WebKit.

2) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to an out of bounds 
memory access when accessing the canvas.  In this case the 
vulnerability was identified whilst playing with bug #43813 from 
Google's Chrome repository.

3) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to a NULL pointer 
dereference leading to a crash.

4) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to a "use-after-free" 
class flaw when the context menu is used whilst the document DOM
that is being changed from within Javascript.

1 and 2 are already fixed.
3 and 4 are not fixed.

Are there upstream bug numbers for each of these issues?
Comment 2 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2012-11-09 14:22:12 UTC
After talking with ago, we were able to confirm that all these CVEs are fixed by 4.9.3

CVE-2012-4515 (
  Use-after-free vulnerability in khtml/rendering/render_replaced.cpp in
  Konqueror in KDE 4.7.3, when the context menu is shown, allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
  arbitrary code by accessing an iframe when it is being updated.

CVE-2012-4514 (
  rendering/render_replaced.cpp in Konqueror in KDE before 4.9.3 allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a
  crafted web page, related to "trying to reuse a frame with a null part."

CVE-2012-4513 (
  khtml/imload/scaledimageplane.h in Konqueror in KDE 4.7.3 allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly read memory via
  large canvas dimensions, which leads to an unexpected sign extension and a
  heap-based buffer over-read.
