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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22912


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


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.


Update the affected packages.
