It's a KDE component and part of kio. From what I could gather from a little Googling KIO handles things like detecting mounted filesystems and handling file operations. Killing it was probably not a good idea.

It just a socket for one of the programs of KDE. KDE is messy and it has a security risk because it uses /tmp. Sockets in KDE makes KDE programs share data with other KDE programs. If you are paranoid, I suggest using knoppix to run a rootkit scan. If you update the rootkit signatures before you ran the scan and it came up with nothing, you should not be alarmed of the process line in ps.

A KDE developer will give you more detail information.
