New kdelibs packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1 and -current
to fix security issues with URI handling.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database: 

Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
Mon May 17 19:31:12 PDT 2004
patches/packages/kdelibs-3.1.4-i486-2.tgz:  Patched URI security
  issues.  According to 
    The telnet, rlogin, ssh and mailto URI handlers in KDE do not
    check for '-' at the beginning of the hostname passed, which
    makes it possible to pass an option to the programs started
    by the handlers.
  For more details, see:
