openSUSE 10 Security Update : kdebase3-kdm (kdebase3-kdm-1609)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27285


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


KDM stores the type of the previously used session in the user's home directory. By using a symlink users could trick kdm into also storing content of files that are normally not accesible by users (CVE-2006-2449).


Update the affected kdebase3-kdm package.
