Foresight: qt qt-tools Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Bill Keys   
Previous version of the qt package are vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack in which a maliciously crafted Unicode string may cause a heap-based buffer overflow in applications that use the Qt libraries.

Note that while Foresight ships qt for compatibility with third-party applications, Foresight Linux does not include any components which use qt, so a default install is not exposed to this issue.
