<description>
<p>
Tim Brown of Portcullis Computer Security Ltd and Dirk Mueller of KDE
reported multiple format string errors in qWarning() calls in files
qtextedit.cpp, qdatatable.cpp, qsqldatabase.cpp, qsqlindex.cpp,
qsqlrecord.cpp, qglobal.cpp, and qsvgdevice.cpp.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could trigger one of the vulnerabilities by causing a Qt
application to parse specially crafted text, which may lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Qt 3 users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;=x11-libs/qt-3*&quot;</code>
</resolution>
