In the cold clear light of a winter's day, I realise I should also
point out there have been a number of security bulletins issued by
kde.org for problems which affect the above KDE release (and other
releases of course).  You should review the bulletins listed at 

It looks like the first one affecting 3.2.2 is the one dated

The fix is sometimes as simple as disabling or uninstalling an
infrequently needed facility, but for other problems you may need to
obtain the relevant package source, apply the source patch from
kde.org, and recompile your own binary to regain proper security.

Because the 3.2.2 packages at download.kde.org are unofficial, you
can't rely on them being kept current with security fixes - it always
depends on how much spare time the volunteer who made them has.
