Sun(sm) Alert Notification

     * Sun Alert ID: 57637
     * Synopsis: Security Vulnerabilities in QT Library May Allow a
       Remote Unprivileged User to Execute Arbitrary Code
     * Category: Security
     * Product: Sun Java Desktop System(JDS)
     * BugIDs: 5090119
     * Avoidance: Patch

1. Impact

   Due to multiple vulnerabilities in libqt, a remote unprivileged user
   may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of a local
   user when that local user has loaded a Bitmap (.bmp) format image
   file, XPixMap (.xpm) format image file or a Graphics Interchange
   Format (.gif) format image file supplied by an untrusted remote user.
   
   Note: QT is a multiplatform C++ GUI application framework. It is used
   in many popular Open Source projects such as KDE.
  
   This issue is described in the following documents:

2. Contributing Factors

   This issue can occur in the following releases:
   
   Linux
   
     * Sun Java Desktop System (JDS) 2003 without the updated RPMs

     * Sun Java Desktop System (JDS) Release 2 without the updated RPMs
       (patch-9278)
       
   Note: JDS for Solaris is not impacted by this issue.
   
   This issue only occurs with QT Library versions qt3-3.1.1-117 or
   earlier.
   
   To determine the release of JDS for Linux installed on a system, the
   following command can be run:
   
   % cat /etc/sun-release
    Sun Java Desktop System, Release 2 -build 10b (GA)
    Assembled 30 March 2004

   run:
   
   % rpm -qf /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3
    qt3-3.1.1-117

3. Symptoms
