Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : kdelibs, qt-x11-free vulnerability (USN-452-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28049
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe Qt library did not correctly handle truncated UTF8 strings, which could cause some applications to incorrectly filter malicious strings.
If a Konqueror user were tricked into visiting a website containing specially crafted strings, normal XSS prevention could be bypassed allowing a remote attacker to steal confidential data.
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.
