Here are the slackware-current changelog updates:

Fri Apr 25 23:09:23 CDT 2008
kde/kdelibs-3.5.9-i486-4.tgz: Patched to fix a security problem.
From the KDE advisory: “If start_kdeinit is installed as setuid root, a
local user might be able to send unix signals to other processes, cause
a denial of service or even possibly execute arbitrary code.”
This issue affects KDE 3.5.5 through KDE 3.5.9.
We recommend upgrading to the new kdelibs package as soon as possible.
