Synopsis :

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

Description :

A number of format string flaws have been discovered in how Qt handled
error messages by Dirk Mueller and Tim Brown of Portcullis Computer

from user-supplied data in a certain way, it could possibly lead to
the execution of arbitrary code or a denial of service.

This update provides packages which are patched to prevent these
issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
