FreeBSD : kdelibs -- integer overflow in khtml (d8fbf13a-6215-11db-a59e-0211d85f11fb)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Red Hat reports :

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt handled pixmap
images. The KDE khtml library uses Qt in such a way that untrusted
parameters could be passed to Qt, triggering the overflow. An attacker
could for example create a malicious web page that when viewed by a
victim in the Konqueror browser would cause Konqueror to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the victim.
