Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0725: qt

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the qt packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated qt packages that correct an integer overflow flaw are now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Qt is a software toolkit that simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications for the X Window
System.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt handled certain pixmap
images. If an application linked against Qt created a pixmap image in a
certain way, it could lead to a denial of service or possibly permit the
execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-4811)

Users of Qt should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.
