Debian: New qt4-x11 packages fix cross-site scripting vulnerability

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. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

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.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
4.2.1-2etch1

For the testing and unstable distribution (lenny and sid, respectively),
this problem has been fixed in version 4.2.2-2

We recommend that you upgrade your qt4-x11 package.
