Fedora Core 2 : qt-3.3.3-0.1 (2004-271)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a heap overflow in the
BMP image decoder in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could
create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would cause
an application linked with Qt to crash or possibly execute arbitrary
code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0691 to this issue.

Additionally, various flaws were discovered in the GIF, XPM, and JPEG
decoders in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could create
carefully crafted image files in such a way that it could cause an
application linked against Qt to crash when the file was opened by a
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-0692 and CVE-2004-0693
to these issues.

Users of Qt should update to these updated packages which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
