Description

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. Several format string flaws were found in Qt error message handling. If an application linked against Qt created an error message from user supplied data in a certain way, it could lead to a denial of service or possibly allow the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2007-3388) Users of Qt should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. Red Hat would like to acknowledge Tim Brown of Portcullis Computer Security and Dirk Mueller for these issues.
