Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

(CVE-2009-0945)

Several flaws were discovered in the QtWebKit browser and JavaScript engines. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
