openSUSE 10 Security Update : qt (qt-3050)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27411


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


qt wrongly accepts overly long UTF-8 sequences due to a bug in the UTF-8 decoder. This may lead to security problems unter certain circumstances. The bug for example allows for script tag injection in konqueror (CVE-2007-0242).


Update the affected qt packages.
