Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200712-08)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 09, 2007
Bug(s): #189536
ID: 200712-08

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities in the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library may lead to
the remote execution of arbitrary code in Qt applications.


Background


Qt is a cross-platform GUI framework, which is used e.g. by KDE. The
AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library packages Qt libraries for 32bit x86
emulation on AMD64.


Affected Packages

Package: app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-qtlibs
Vulnerable: < 20071114-r2
Unaffected: >= 20071114-r2
Architectures: amd64


Description


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.


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-20071114-r2"
