Security Fix

CVE-2011-3365
An input sanitization flaw was found in the KSSL (KDE SSL Wrapper) API. An attacker could supply a specially-crafted SSL certificate (for example, via a web page) to an application using KSSL, such as the Konqueror web browser, causing misleading information to be presented to the user, possibly tricking them into accepting the certificate as valid.
Enhancement
BZ#743951
