Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:187: qt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the qt package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:187 (qt).

An integer overflow was discovered in the way that Qt handled pixmap
images. This flaw could be exploited by a remote attacker in a
malicious website that, when viewed by an individual using an
application that uses Qt (like Konqueror), would cause it to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
