An integer overflow has been found in the pixmap handling routines in the Qt GUI libraries. This could allow an attacker to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code by providing a specially crafted image file and inducing the victim to view it in an application based on Qt.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in versions 3:3.3.7-1 and 4.2.1-1.
