Affected versions

Problem description

A problem exists with the kdesu component of kdelibs. It created a world-readable temporary file to exchange authentication information and delete it shortly after. This can be abused by a local user to gain access to the X server and could result in a compromise of the account that kdesu would access. Update: The previous update broke sound support under KDE. This update resolves the problem.
