Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 1
Name        : qt
Version     : 3.1.2
Release     : 14.2
Summary     : The shared library for the Qt GUI toolkit.
Description :
Qt is a GUI software toolkit which simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications
for the X Window System.

Qt is written in C++ and is fully object-oriented.

This package contains the shared library needed to run qt
applications, as well as the README files for qt.

Update Information:

During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a heap overflow in the BMP
image decoder in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would cause an application
linked with Qt to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when the file
was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0691 to this issue.

Additionally, various flaws were discovered in the GIF, XPM, and JPEG
decoders in Qt versions prior to 3.3.3. An attacker could create carefully
crafted image files in such a way that it could cause an application linked
against Qt to crash when the file was opened by a victim. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
names CAN-2004-0692 and CAN-2004-0693 to these issues.

Users of Qt should update to these updated packages which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
