Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.54394
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:122 (kdelibs)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:122 (kdelibs)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to kdelibs
announced via advisory MDKSA-2005:122.

The Kate and Kwrite programs create a file backup before saving a
modified file. These backup files are created with default system
permissions, even if the original file had more strict permissions
set.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Affected versions: 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
