Description

During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a heap overflow in the BMP image decoder in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with Qt to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0691 to this issue.

Additionally, various flaws were discovered in the GIF, XPM, and JPEG decoders in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could create carefully crafted image files in such a way that it could cause an application linked against Qt to crash when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-0692 and CVE-2004-0693 to these issues.

Users of Qt should update to these updated packages which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
