[slackware-security]  KDE packages updated (SSA:2003-213-01)

New KDE packages are available for Slackware 9.0.  These address a
security issue where Konqueror may leak authentication credentials.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Fri Aug  1 15:15:51 PDT 2003
patches/packages/kde/*:  Upgraded to KDE 3.1.3.
  Note that this update addresses a security problem in Konqueror which may
  cause authentication credentials to be leaked to an unintended website
  through the HTTP-referer header when they have been entered into Konqueror
  as a URL of the form:
    http://user:password () host/
  For more information about this issue, please see the KDE advisory:
    http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20030729-1.txt
We recommend that sites running KDE install this update.
