DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been reported in KDE Kontact and KMail, which
can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security
restrictions.

The security issue is caused due to an error within the
"HTMLQuoteColorer::process()" function
(messageviewer/htmlquotecolorer.cpp), which incorrectly enables
JavaScript, Java, and Plugins when parsing quoted messages. This can
be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary HTML and script code via a
specially crafted email.

SOLUTION:
Fixed in the SVN repository.
