Description:
KDM allows the user to select the session type for login. This setting
is stored in the user home directory. Previous versions of KDM will
follow a symbolic link and can thus disclose the contents of any file
on the system (such as /etc/shadow) to arbitrary users. KDM is not the
default window manager on rPath Linux.
