    A reply-based decryption oracle was found in kdepim, which provides
    the KMail e-mail client.
    
    An attacker in possession of S/MIME or PGP encrypted emails can wrap
    them as sub-parts within a crafted multipart email. The encrypted
    part(s) can further be hidden using HTML/CSS or ASCII newline
    characters. This modified multipart email can be re-sent by the
    attacker to the intended receiver. If the receiver replies to this
    (benign looking) email, they unknowingly leak the plaintext of the
    encrypted message part(s) back to the attacker.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    4:4.14.1-1+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kdepim packages.
