Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : qt (MDKSA-2007:183)
High Nessus Plugin ID 26049
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA buffer overflow was found in how Qt expanded malformed Unicode strings. If an application linked against Qt parsed a malicious Unicode string, it could lead to a denial of service or potentially allow for the execution of arbitrary code.
Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue. Although the problem is not exploitable in Qt4, patched packages have been issued regardless.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
