A problem with how kdm manages the ~/.dmrc file was discovered by
Ludwig Nussel. By using a symlink attack, a local user could get kdm
to read arbitrary files on the system, including privileged system
files and those belonging to other users.
Mandriva's mdkkdm also suffers from this same problem and has been
patched to correct it. Only Corporate 3 is affected; in Mandriva Linux
2006, mdkkdm is in contribs.
