The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
Ilja van Sprundel from suresec.org notified the KDE security team
about a serious lock file handling error in kcheckpass that can, in
some configurations, be used to gain root access.
In order for an exploit to succeed, the directory /var/lock has to be
writeable for a user that is allowed to invoke kcheckpass.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
