Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76615


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Richard J. Moore reports :

The builtin GIF decoder in QtGui prior to Qt 5.3 contained a bug that would lead to a NULL pointer dereference when loading certain hand crafted corrupt GIF files. This in turn would cause the application loading these hand crafted GIFs to crash.


Update the affected packages.
