Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2004:027: qt3/qt3-non-mt/qt3-32bit/qt3-static

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the qt3 packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:027
(qt3/qt3-non-mt/qt3-32bit/qt3-static).


The QT-library is an environment for GUI-programming and is used in
various well-known projects, like KDE.

There is a heap overflow in the BMP image format parser. An
attacker, exploiting this flaw, would need to be able to coerce
a local user or program to process a specially crafted image
file. Upon successful exploitation, the attacker would be able
to execute arbitrary code.

In addition, there are 2 distinct flaws within the XPM parser
which, when exploited, lead to a Denial of Service (DoS).
