<p>
Qt is a cross-platform GUI framework, which is used e.g. by KDE. The
AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library packages Qt libraries for 32bit x86
emulation on AMD64.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
The Qt versions used by the AMD64 x86 emulation Qt libraries were
vulnerable to several flaws (GLSA 200708-16, GLSA 200710-28)
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could trigger one of the vulnerabilities by causing a Qt
application to parse specially crafted text or Unicode strings, which
may lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All AMD64 x86 emulation Qt library users should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-qtlibs-20071114-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
