QtGui is a module for the Qt toolkit.
An error in qtiffhandler.cpp could cause a buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TIFF image with an application linked against QtGui, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All QtGui users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/qt-gui-4.7.4-r1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
