====================================================================== 
4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in KDE, which can be 
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to KGet not properly sanitising the 
"name" attribute of the "file" element of metalink files before using 
it to download files. If a user is tricked into downloading from a 
specially crafted metalink file, this can be exploited to download 
files to directories outside of the intended download directory via 
directory traversal attacks.

====================================================================== 
5) Solution 

Apply patches for the 4.3 and 4.4 branches committed to the KDE 
Subversion repository.
