Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated qt packages that correct an integer overflow flaw are now

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

Qt is a software toolkit that simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications for the X
Window System.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt handled certain
pixmap images. If an application linked against Qt created a pixmap
image in a certain way, it could lead to a denial of service or
possibly allow the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-4811)

Users of Qt should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.
