From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0883 :
Updated qt packages that correct two security flaws are now available.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Qt is a software toolkit that simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications for the X
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.
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)
Users of Qt should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct these issues.
