Description Jeff Sheltren 2006-11-16 19:04:13 EST
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Qt handled pixmap images.
The KDE khtml library uses Qt in such a way that untrusted parameters could
be passed to Qt, triggering the overflow. An attacker could for example
create a malicious web page that when viewed by a victim in the Konqueror
browser would cause Konqueror to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the victim. (CVE-2006-4811)

See RH announcement:
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0720.html

patches for qt are being handled in bug #214393
