Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

According to a KDE Security Advisory, KDE may sometimes create
temporary files without properly checking the ownership and type of
the target path. This could allow a local attacker to cause KDE
applications to overwrite arbitrary files.
