Fedora 12 : qt-4.5.3-9.fc12 (2009-11487)

high Nessus Plugin ID 42803
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

A security flaw was found in the WebKit's Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) implementation. Multiple security flaws (integer underflow, invalid pointer dereference, buffer underflow and a denial of service) were found in the way WebKit's FTP parser used to process remote FTP directory listings.

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.

Solution

Update the affected qt package.
