Update: Debian, SuSE release new KDE/kdelibs packages

A flaw in the way KDE and kdelibs uses Ghostscript software to process PostScript and PDF files could be exploited to run arbitrary code on the affected machine. An attacker would have to provide a malicious PostScript or PDF file via e-mail or a Web server.

Both Debian and SuSE have released packages to address the problem.
