Bug#580420: konqueror does not report cleartext content in https pages

Package: konqueror
Version: 4:4.3.4-1
Severity: normal

Most web browsers show a lock and/or change the address bar to
indicate that an https site has been connected to via TLS.  konqueror
shows (afaict) a green shield with a check-mark.  Fair enough.

But other browsers also indicate a "broken lock" or something similar
when an https page sources plain http content (e.g. in an img,
stylesheet, or script).  This is to indicate to the user (who can't
tell which pieces of content are served over encrypted channels and
which ones are exposed in transit) that the rendered page is not
entirely confidential communication.

Konqueror does not display this state to the user, so konqueror users
are vulnerable to data being sent in the clear without their

Thanks for maintaining konqueror in debian,
