Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-22 07:39:26 UTC
The new progressive PNG Image loader in KHTML of KDE 4.0 and newer
can be tricked into overrunning a heap allocated memory buffer
by loading a specially encoded image.

Please note that this issue is under embargo until 2008-04-26. *Do not commit* anything to CVS and keep any information confidential until that date.
