SuSE Security Announcement - kreatecd

A buffer overflow exploit for kreatecd (older than version 0.3.8b), a kde tool to burn cd-roms, could lead to local root compromise. The solution is simple, just remove the setuid bit from your kreatecd binary. Other distributions and unixes may be affected as well.
