[slackware-security] kcheckpass in kdebase (SSA:2005-251-01)

New 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.

For more details about the issue, see:
