KMail: HTML injection in plain text viewer
Status in kdepimlibs package in Ubuntu:
Status in kdepimlibs source package in Precise:
Status in kdepimlibs source package in Trusty:
Status in kdepimlibs source package in Xenial:
Status in kdepimlibs source package in Yakkety:
Through a malicious URL that contained a quote character it
was possible to inject HTML code in KMail's plain text viewer.
Due to the parser used on the URL it was not possible to include
the equal sign (=) or a space into the injected HTML, which greatly
reduces the available HTML functionality. Although it is possible
to include an HTML comment indicator to hide content.
Note: Affected package is kdepimlibs in 12.04 - 15.04 and it looks
like both kcoreaddons and messagecomposer in later releases.
