Package        : kdelibs
Vulnerability  : insecure permissions
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1920

Lennert Buytenhek discoverd that that patch to cure this information
leak was only included but not applied, hence, this update.  For
completeness we're copying the original advisory text:

   KDE developers have reported a vulnerability in the backup file
   handling of Kate and Kwrite.  The backup files are created with
   default permissions, even if the original file had more strict
   permissions set.  This could disclose information unintendedly.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.2-6.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.4.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your kate package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
