storing thumbnails should be an option choosable by the user in the konqueror property sheet. Of course the data are readable by any administrator. The other thing is that a huge amount of storage is wasted. Therefore the storage should be limited by an option let's say for example 5MB. Alternativly the user can create a tmpfs file system in the RAM and link .thumbnails to this place.
Another thing is that any user data stored on the hd, which is not controlled by the user is security vulnerabilty where somebody can attack (see the discussion Bundestrojaner and Schäuble in Germany).

Thanks for your report. This directory is only readable by the user,
and so there is no leak of privacy. Do you mean some other method of
$ ls -lda ~/.thumbnails
