Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : qt-x11-free vulnerability (USN-513-1)

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 :

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.

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 :

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