Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A flaw was found in the way Qt expanded certain UTF8 characters. It
was possible to prevent a Qt-based application from properly
sanitizing user supplied input. This could, for example, result in a
cross-site scripting attack against the Konqueror web browser.
(CVE-2007-0242)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt expanded malformed
Unicode strings. If an application linked against Qt parsed a
malicious Unicode string, it could lead to a denial of service or
possibly allow the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2007-4137)
