Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
