Description Josh Bressers 2006-10-11 15:39:29 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs
Compiler:          gcc-4.1.1-1.fc5 
OS:                Linux

A kmail crasher was posted to full-disclosure a few days ago:

That thread will eventually lead to this reproducer:

The HTML in that file

<IMG SRC=file:"" />

crashes (SIGABRT) both kmail and konqueror, which makes this issue look like a khtml problem.  I'm not able to properly debug this issue as I'm not familiar enough with the KDE internals to know why this is happening.

(CC'ing security@ due to the posting, though I don't consider this to be worth such attention...)

SVN commit 594522 by dfaure:

Don't crash when creating a job for an invalid URL and then calling Scheduler::scheduleJob(job),
which aborts if Scheduler::doJob wasn't called. So let's call doJob in all cases, even if we know
right away that this is an error case.
