RHEL 2.1 / 3 / 4 : qt (RHSA-2006:0725)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22940


The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated qt packages that correct an integer overflow flaw are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate 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 Window System.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt handled certain pixmap images. If an application linked against Qt created a pixmap image in a certain way, it could lead to a denial of service or possibly allow the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-4811)

Users of Qt should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
