Vulnerability Scan Summary
AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Integer overflow
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-06
(AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library: Integer overflow)
An integer overflow flaw has been found in the pixmap handling of Qt,
making the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library vulnerable as well.
By enticing a user to open a specially crafted pixmap image in an
application using the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library, a remote attacker
could cause an application crash or the remote execution of arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-qtlibs-10.0"
Threat Level: Medium
