Slackware Linux Advisory: qt

[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:

patches/packages/qt-3.3.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to qt-3.3.3. This
fixes bugs in the image loading routines which could be used by an
