A KDE Security Advisory reports:

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE LINUX Security Team reported a local denial of service vulnerability in KDE's Desktop Communication Protocol (DCOP) daemon better known as dcopserver.

A local user can lock up the dcopserver of arbitrary other users on the same machine. This can cause a significant reduction in desktop functionality for the affected users including, but not limited to, the inability to browse the internet and the inability to start new applications.
