The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Dirk Mueller discovered that UTF8 strings could be made to cause a
small buffer overflow. A remote attacker could exploit this by sending
specially crafted strings to applications that use the Qt3 library for
UTF8 processing, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution with
user privileges, or a denial of service.
Update the affected packages.
