USN-368-1: Qt vulnerability

24 October 2006

Qt vulnerability



An integer overflow was discovered in Qt's image loader. By processing
a specially crafted image with an application that uses this library
(like Konqueror), a remote attacker could exploit this to execute
arbitrary code with the application's privileges.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06
  • libqt3-mt - 3:3.3.6-1ubuntu6.1
Ubuntu 5.10
  • libqt3-mt - 3:3.3.4-8ubuntu5.1
Ubuntu 5.04
  • libqt3c102 - 3:3.3.3-7ubuntu3.1
  • libqt3c102-mt - 3:3.3.3-7ubuntu3.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your Desktop
session to effect the necessary changes.
