Slackware Linux Advisory: qt

Aug 24, 2004, 14:25 (0 Talkback[s])

[slackware-security] Qt (SSA:2004-236-01)

New Qt packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, and -current to fix security issues. Bugs in the routines that handle PNG, BMP, GIF, and JPEG images may allow an attacker to cause unauthorized code to execute when a specially crafted image file is processed. These flaws may also cause crashes that lead to a denial of service.

More details about these issues may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
