(KDE start_kdeinit: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Vulnerabilities have been reported in the processing of user-controlled

A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with root
privileges, cause a Denial of Service or send Unix signals to other
processes, when start_kdeinit is setuid root.
There is no known workaround at this time.
