[Tex/LaTex] Table of Contents: Customize space between dots before page number

koma-scriptpage-numberingspacingtable of contents

I am writing a small KOMA-Script scrartcl document with multiple sections. In the table of contents, LaTeX fills the current line with dots between the end of the section name and the page number.
