<impact type="normal">
<p>
A local attacker could create a malicious shared object that would be
loaded by Qt, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the Qt application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Qt users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=x11-libs/qt-3.3.4-r2&quot;</code>
