[slackware-security]  qt (SSA:2006-298-01)

New qt packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0
to fix a possible security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4811

Trolltech has put out a press release which may be found here:

  http://www.trolltech.com/company/newsroom/announcements/press.2006-10-19.5434451733


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/qt-3.3.7-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:  Upgraded to qt-x11-free-3.3.7.
  This fixes an issue with Qt's handling of pixmap images that causes Qt linked
  applications to crash if a specially crafted malicious image is loaded.
  Inspection of the code in question makes it seem unlikely that this could
  lead to more serious implications (such as arbitrary code execution), but it
  is recommended that users upgrade to the new Qt package.
  For more information, see:

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
