Slackware 12.0 : kdebase, kdelibs (SSA:2007-264-01)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New kdebase packages are available for Slackware 12.0 to fix security
issues. A long URL padded with spaces could be used to display a false
URL in Konqueror's addressbar, and KDM when used with no-password
login could be tricked into logging a different user in without a
password. This is not the way KDM is configured in Slackware by
default, somewhat mitigating the impact of this issue.
