Sorry it's not in the same thread, as I wasn't subscribed to this list

I can verify that only KDE SC 4.4.0 is affected. Released versions of
4.3 are *not* affected by this bug.

I have committed a patch to the KDE SVN server as revision 1089213. See

Although this solved the problem for me locally, I'm in the process of
having other testers verify that they can no longer reproduce the
problem with this patch, and will report back once this is verified.

Gentoo and Fedora distribution maintainers have also tested this patch
and verified that it works. The patch against 4.4.0 can easily be
obtained from here:

As this is now backported to the 4.4 branch, it is expected that 4.4.0
will be the only release affected by this vulnerability.
