Title: AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Integer overflow (GLSA 200703-06)
Date: March 04, 2007
The AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library makes use of an insecure version of the
Qt library, potentially allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary
The AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library for AMD64 emulates the x86 (32-bit)
Qt library on the AMD64 (64-bit) architecture.
Vulnerable: < 10.0
Unaffected: >= 10.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
An integer overflow flaw has been found in the pixmap handling of Qt,
making the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library vulnerable as well.
By enticing a user to open a specially crafted pixmap image in an
application using the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library, a remote attacker
could cause an application crash or the remote execution of arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library users should upgrade to the latest
