This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the

These updated packages address the following vulnerabilities :

Kees Huijgen found a flaw in the way KDM handled logins when autologin
and 'shutdown with password' were enabled. A local user would have
been able to login via KDM as any user without requiring a password.
(CVE-2007-4569)

Two Konqueror address spoofing flaws were discovered. A malicious
website could spoof the Konqueror address bar, tricking a victim into
believing the page was from a different site. (CVE-2007-3820,
CVE-2007-4224)

Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues."
