GLSA-200611-02 : Qt: Integer overflow
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 23626
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200611-02 (Qt: Integer overflow)
An integer overflow flaw has been found in the pixmap handling of Qt.
By enticing a user to open a specially crafted pixmap image in an application using Qt, e.g. Konqueror, a remote attacker could be able to cause an application crash or the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=x11-libs/qt-3.3.6-r4' All Qt 4.x users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=x11-libs/qt-4.1.4-r2'
