Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdelibs (MDKSA-2005:122)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19265


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The Kate and Kwrite programs create a file backup before saving a modified file. These backup files are created with default system permissions, even if the original file had more strict permissions set.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.


Update the affected packages.
