Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in recent versions of Qt, a commonly used graphic widget set, used in KDE for example. The first problem allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code, while the other two only seem to pose a denial of service danger. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities :

  • CAN-2004-0691 : Chris Evans has discovered a heap-based overflow when handling 8-bit RLE encoded BMP files.

  • CAN-2004-0692 :

    Marcus Meissner has discovered a crash condition in the XPM handling code, which is not yet fixed in Qt 3.3.

  • CAN-2004-0693 :

    Marcus Meissner has discovered a crash condition in the GIF handling code, which is not yet fixed in Qt 3.3.
