USN-368-1: Qt vulnerability
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-368-1
23rd October, 2006
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
- Ubuntu 5.10
- Ubuntu 5.04
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.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
- 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
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your Desktop
session to effect the necessary changes.
