DESCRIPTION
 QT[1] is a cross-platform GUI toolkit mostly used by KDE.

 Chris Evans found[2] a heap overflow vulnerability[3] in the QT
 library when handling 8-bit RLE encoded BMP files. An attacker could
 use this to compromise the account used to view the specially crafted
 image. Further investigations found similar vulnerabilities in
 XPM[4], GIF[5] and JPEG image handlers.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all qt users upgrade their packages.

 IMPORTANT: all applications linked against libqt must be restarted
 after the upgrade in order to close the vulnerabilities.
