Description Alexandros Toptsoglou 2020-05-11 08:08:49 UTC
CVE-2020-12755

fishProtocol::establishConnection in fish/fish.cpp in KDE kio-extras through
20.04.0 makes a cacheAuthentication call even if the user had not set the
keepPassword option. This may lead to unintended KWallet storage of a password.
