Updated qt3 packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 18 Jun 2014
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2013-4549 , CVE-2014-0190


Updated qt3 packages fix security vulnerabilities:

QXmlSimpleReader in Qt versions prior to 5.2 supports expansion of
internal entities in XML documents without placing restrictions to
ensure the document does not cause excessive memory usage. If an
application using this API processes untrusted data then the
application may use unexpected amounts of memory if a malicious
document is processed (CVE-2013-4549).

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in QGIFFormat::fillRect in
QtGui. If an application using the qt-x11 libraries opened a malicious
GIF file with invalid width and height values, it could cause the
application to crash (CVE-2014-0190)..
