Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-08 (AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Multiple vulnerabilities)

The Qt versions used by the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt libraries were     vulnerable to several flaws (GLSA 200708-16, GLSA 200710-28)   Impact :

An attacker could trigger one of the vulnerabilities by causing a Qt     application to parse specially crafted text or Unicode strings, which     may lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the     user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
