SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew kdebase packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, and
-current to fix a security issue with the kcheckpass program. Earlier versions of Slackware are not affected. A flaw in the way the program creates lockfiles could allow a local attacker to gain root privileges.
