# Koma-Script: How to reduce the size of the footer

I'd like to reduce the size of the footer in the following example, because I want to get rid of the extra whitespace area under the footer.

\documentclass[a4page]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{scrpage2}

\ifoot[\today]{\today}

\cfoot[Authors]{Authors}

\setfootsepline{.4pt}

\begin{document}
\section{Section 1}
Text...
\end{document}

Can this be accomplished somehow?
