Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1200] DSA-1200-1 qt-x11-free

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1200-1 qt-x11-free

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

An integer overflow has been found in the pixmap handling routines in
the Qt GUI libraries. This could permit a possible hacker to cause a denial of
service and possibly execute arbitrary code by providing a specially
crafted image file and inducing the victim to view it in an application
based on Qt.
For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 3:3.3.4-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
versions 3:3.3.7-1 and 4.2.1-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your qt-x11-free packages.
