KDE Security Advisory reports:

The default rendering type for a QLabel is QLabel::AutoText, which uses heuristics to determine whether to render the given content as plain text or rich text. KSSL and Rekonq did not properly force its QLabels to use QLabel::PlainText. As a result, if given a certificate containing rich text in its fields, they would render the rich text. Specifically, a certificate containing a common name (CN) that has a table element will cause the second line of the table to be displayed. This can allow spoofing of the certificate's common name.
