Kate / Kwrite create a file backup before saving a modified file.
These backup files are created with default permissions, even if the original file had more strict permissions set.
Depending on the system security settings, backup files might be readable by other users. Kate / Kwrite are network transparent applications and therefore this vulnerability might not be restricted to local users.
