Trolltech Qt SVG Image Segmentation Fault Vulnerability



A vulnerability in Trolltech Qt could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on a targeted system.

The vulnerability is due to improper parsing of malformed URL references by the affected software. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user to access an SVG image file that submits malicious input to the targeted system. A successful exploit could cause a segmentation fault in the qsvghandler.cpp file, resulting in a DoS condition.

Trolltech has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
