kcheckpass in kdebase (SSA:2005-251-01)
Posted on: 09/09/2005 05:49 AM
New kdebase packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, and -current to fix a security issue with the kcheckpass program. Earlier versions of Slackware are not affected. A flaw in the way the program creates lockfiles could allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.
