Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           qt3
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:085
 Date:                   August 18th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Chris Evans discovered a heap-based overflow in the QT library when
 handling 8-bit RLE encoded BMP files.  This vulnerability could allow
 for the compromise of the account used to view or browse malicious
 BMP files.  On subsequent investigation, it was also found that the
 handlers for XPM, GIF, and JPEG image types were also faulty.
 
 These problems affect all applications that use QT to handle image
 files, such as QT-based image viewers, the Konqueror web browser,
 and others.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
