Important Change to KDE's Security Policy

Filed under
KDE
Web

KDE's Security Policy has had a small update. The change is as follows:

* Information about security vulnerabilities will no longer be published via the Dot at http://dot.kde.org.

This change was made to reflect actual practices. Although the security policy has stated that security information would be published via the Dot, a review has shown that this has rarely occurred due to confusion as to whether the Dot is the appropriate venue for this information. This can mislead users into believing that following the Dot provides them with pertinent security information.
