Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : qt3 (MDKSA-2007:151)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25835
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA number of format string flaws have been discovered in how Qt handled error messages by Dirk Mueller and Tim Brown of Portcullis Computer Security. If an application linked against Qt created an error message 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
