A local attacker could use this flaw to read or alter the contents of a particular shared memory segment, possibly leading to their ability to obtain sensitive information or influence the behavior of a process that is using the shared memory segment. (CVE-2013-0254)
All running applications linked against Qt libraries must be restarted for this update to take effect.
