Scientific Linux Security Update : qt on SL6.x i386/x86_64

Low Nessus Plugin ID 65654


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


It was discovered that the QSharedMemory class implementation of the Qt toolkit created shared memory segments with insecure permissions. 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.


Update the affected packages.
