Fedora 11 : qt-4.5.2-2.fc11 (2009-8800)

High Nessus Plugin ID 40680


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Qt's WebKit code did not properly handle numeric character references, which could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted HTML document.
Also included is: * a fix for lib symlinks changing erroneously on upgrades * a fix for Copy and paste issues * added support for more x keycodes

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected qt package.
