Description

This update fixes CVE-2013-4549 (XML Entity Expansion Denial of Service) in Qt 3. See the Qt Project Security Advisory for details: http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/announce/2013-December/000036.ht ml

In addition, this update 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),

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

    • some minor format string abuse that was probably not exploitable (most instances definitely weren
