Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Integer overflow (GLSA 200703-06)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 04, 2007
Bug(s): #153704
ID: 200703-06

Synopsis


The AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library makes use of an insecure version of the
Qt library, potentially allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary
code.


Background


The AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library for AMD64 emulates the x86 (32-bit)
Qt library on the AMD64 (64-bit) architecture.


Affected Packages

Package: app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-qtlibs
Vulnerable: < 10.0
Unaffected: >= 10.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


An integer overflow flaw has been found in the pixmap handling of Qt,
making the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library vulnerable as well.


Impact


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.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library users should upgrade to the latest
version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-qtlibs-10.0"
