Vulnerability in the Plasma desktop

The KDE devs are working on a patch to fix a vulnerability https://twitter.com/kdecommunity/status/1158795894445228032?s=20

I just saw this on FB. It’s pretty poor form to not give the devs any heads up first.

β€œI mainly just wanted to drop a 0day before Defcon [a security conference],” Penner told us. β€œI do plan on reporting it, but the issue is more of a design flaw than an actual vulnerability, despite what it can do.”

β€œTo be honest, I was debating on going into the code and making the change myself considering KDE is open source,” Penner said."

Ya lo han corregido. Igualito bug-windows.

The bug has been solved by the KDE team and kudos to the way they handled this, despite the horrible attitude the poster on Twitter had.
