Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-02-04 11:10:39 UTC
A security flaw was found in the way QSharedMemory class implementation of the Qt toolkit created shared memory segments (they were created with world-readable and world-writeable permissions). A local attacker could use this flaw to read or alter content of particular shared memory segment, possibly leading to their ability to obtain sensitive information or influence behaviour of shared memory segment reader process.
