    Phoronix: KDE Plasma Had A Silly But Serious Security Bug

    If you are a KDE user and haven't yet upgraded to Plasma 5.12, you may want to do so soon, or one of the recent point releases -- especially if your system is potentially accessible by others to insert rogue flash/memory devices...

        Spent a couple of hours today trying to make a Dolphin service menu script work when really what I should have done is just renamed a USB key... Cute bug...

          Was it a code quality issue? It sounds more like user interface wasn't thought through. I'm sure it was a very well written security bug as unintentional as it was.

                On the last lenghty GTK 4 discussion on Phoronix, people were saying that GTK and GNOME don't get enough quality testing and stuff and that Qt and KDE did. But this seems like something that could've been avoided by proper testing, so it seems like Qt/KDE doesn't get as properly tested as people claimed.

                  If you look at it, this is not something testing would have avoided. It's something learned from examining the code and figuring out it does something without consideration of user interface.
