Taken from NDSA20121010:

--8<-------- This advisory comes in 4 related parts:

1) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to type confusion 
leading to memory disclosure.  The root cause of this is the same
as CVE-2010-0046 reported by Chris Rohlf which affected WebKit.

2) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to an out of bounds 
memory access when accessing the canvas.  In this case the 
vulnerability was identified whilst playing with bug #43813 from 
Google's Chrome repository.

3) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to a NULL pointer 
dereference leading to a crash.

4) The Konqueror web browser is vulnerable to a "use-after-free" 
class flaw when the context menu is used whilst the document DOM
that is being changed from within Javascript.

These flaws were identified during an analysis of previously 
reported vulnerabilities that affected Google's Chrome web browser.
It is believed that only vulnerability 1 is/was common to the two
code bases.

--8<--------

I'm pre-advising on these flaws since I've not heard anything from
the KDE project in about 8 months regarding 3 and 4 and we are
aware that 1 and 2 have been fixed.  I'll give it 7 days and then
drop technical details.  Vendors with an interest can contact me
off list.

Do these things need CVE #'s or did they already get them, or? I'll
need more infor to assign CVE's to make sure we don't end up with
duplicates (e.g. function names/code/etc. would be ideal).
