CVE-2007-0242

Status Candidate

Overview

The UTF-8 decoder in codecs/qutfcodec.cpp in Qt 3.3.8 and 4.2.3 does not reject long UTF-8 sequences as required by the standard, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) and directory traversal attacks via long sequences that decode to dangerous metacharacters.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1324-01
Posted Sep 22, 2011
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1324-01 - Qt 4 is a software toolkit that simplifies the task of writing and maintaining GUI applications for the X Window System. HarfBuzz is an OpenType text shaping engine. A flaw in the way Qt 4 expanded certain UTF-8 characters could be used to prevent a Qt 4 based application from properly sanitizing user input. Depending on the application, this could allow an attacker to perform directory traversal, or for web applications, a cross-site scripting attack. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the harfbuzz module in Qt 4. If a user loaded a specially-crafted font file with an application linked against Qt 4, it could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Debian Security Advisory 1292-1 - Andreas Nolden discovered a bug in the UTF8 decoding routines in qt4-x11, a C++ GUI library framework, that could allow remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) and directory traversal attacks via long sequences that decode to dangerous metacharacters.

Ubuntu Security Notice 452-1

Ubuntu Security Notice 452-1 - The Qt library did not correctly handle truncated UTF8 strings, which could cause some applications to incorrectly filter malicious strings. If a Konqueror user were tricked into visiting a web site containing specially crafted strings, normal XSS prevention could be bypassed allowing a remote attacker to steal confidential data.
