Essentially, the error page displayed when a requested URL is not available includes said URL. If said URL includes HTML fragments these will be rendered in the context of the requested URL. If you request something like http://wontresolve.twitter.com/"><script>alert(document.cookies)</script> then you may very well snare your Twitter cookies. Originally when I reported this bug to the Rekonq developers, it was a very small project without much following, however Rekonq is starting to make its way into multiple distros so I thought it was probably time to flag it up. Quick history: 05/12/09 Reported by me against Rekonq 0.4 05/12/09 Added note that it also appears to affect Qt's demo browser 05/12/09 KDE patch kwebkitpart 07/12/09 Confirmed by Rekonq developers 13/04/10 Reported resolved by developers 14/07/10 Retested on 0.5 and found still to be vulnerable Cheers, Tim -- Tim Brown <mailto:timb@...-dimension.org.uk> <http://www.nth-dimension.org.uk/> Download attachment "signature.asc " of type "application/pgp-signature" (837 bytes)
