[slackware-security]  Qt (SSA:2004-236-01)


New Qt packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, and -current to
fix security issues.  Bugs in the routines that handle PNG, BMP, GIF, and
JPEG images may allow an attacker to cause unauthorized code to execute when
a specially crafted image file is processed.  These flaws may also cause
crashes that lead to a denial of service.

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