RHEL 3 / 4 / 5 : qt (RHSA-2007:0721)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

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.

Several format string flaws were found in Qt error message handling.
If an application linked against Qt created an error message from
user-supplied data in a certain way, it could lead to a denial of
service or possibly allow the execution of arbitrary code.

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

Red Hat would like to acknowledge Tim Brown of Portcullis Computer
Security and Dirk Mueller for these issues.
