Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : kdelibs, qt-x11-free vulnerability (USN-452-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The Qt library did not correctly handle truncated UTF8 strings, which
could cause some applications to incorrectly filter malicious strings.
If a Konqueror user were tricked into visiting a website containing
specially crafted strings, normal XSS prevention could be bypassed
allowing a remote attacker to steal confidential data.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
