Description

Qt Project Security Advisory: XML Entity Expansion Denial of Service (CVE-2013-4549) See also http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/announce/2013-December/000036.ht ml

In addition, this update :

  • adds support for the aarch64 architecture,

    • fixes QTBUG-35459, a too low character limit for XML entities enforced by the fix for CVE-2013-4549 that was breaking real-world XML files (in particular, the KatePart Lilypond syntax highlighting description),

    • fixes QTBUG-35460, a misspelling in the error message produced by the CVE-2013-4549 fix when the character limit for XML entities was exceeded,

    • reverts the faulty 'Discover printers shared by CUPS 1.6 (#980952)' patch, which broke default printer selection and caused crash bug #1054312.

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.
