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

high Nessus Plugin ID 42803


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected qt package.
