The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated kdebase packages that resolve several security flaws are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

Desktop Environment. These core packages include Konqueror, the web
browser and file manager.

and 'shutdown with password' were enabled. A local user would have
been able to login via KDM as any user without requiring a password.
Two Konqueror address spoofing flaws were discovered. A malicious
website could spoof the Konqueror address bar, tricking a victim into
believing the page was from a different site. (CVE-2007-3820,
Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
