kdelibs contains libraries for the K Desktop Environment.

A flaw was discovered affecting Kate, the KDE advanced text editor, and Kwrite. Depending on system settings, it may be possible for a local user to read the backup files created by Kate or Kwrite. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-1920 to this issue.

Please note this issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 2.1.

Users of Kate or Kwrite should update to these errata packages which contains a backported patch from the KDE security team correcting this issue.
