Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS : qt-x11-free vulnerability (USN-368-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27948
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionAn integer overflow was discovered in Qt's image loader. By processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses this library (like Konqueror), a remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the application's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
