Mandrake Linux Security: kdelibs update

Author: JT Smith

From Net-security.org:

A problem exists with the kdesu component of kdelibs. It
created a world-readable temporary file to exchange
authentication information and delete it shortly after.
This can be abused by a local user to gain access to the X
server and could result in a compromise of the account that
kdesu would access.
