GLSA-201403-04 : QtCore: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72997
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201403-04 (QtCore: Denial of Service)
A vulnerability in QXmlSimpleReader’s XML entity parsing has been discovered.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted XML file using an application linked against QtCore, possibly resulting in Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll QtCore users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.5-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
