Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-20 (Qt: Image loader overflows)

There are several unspecified bugs in the QImage class which may cause     crashes or allow execution of arbitrary code as the user running the Qt     application. These bugs affect the PNG, XPM, BMP, GIF and JPEG image     types.

Impact :

An attacker may exploit these bugs by causing a user to open a     carefully-constructed image file in any one of these formats. This may     be accomplished through e-mail attachments (if the user uses KMail), or     by simply placing a malformed image on a website and then convicing the     user to load the site in a Qt-based browser (such as Konqueror).

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to     upgrade to the latest available version of Qt.
