Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-08-17 16:23:42 UTC

CVE-2009-1725 (
  WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0.2 does not properly handle numeric
  character references, which allows remote attackers to execute
  arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
  application crash) via a crafted HTML document.
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-08-17 16:27:46 UTC
All versions in the tree are affected, see the blocker for a patch.
Comment 2 Ben de Groot (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-17 20:22:42 UTC
I've added the patch to qt-webkit-4.4.2-r2, 4.5.1-r1 and 4.5.2-r1. 

Arches please test and mark as stable:
- x11-libs/qt-webkit-4.4.2-r2 
- x11-libs/qt-webkit-4.5.1-r1

(For those arches who haven't stabled 4.5.1 yet, please mark the rest of Qt 4.5.1 as stable too, so we can remove 4.4.2. If it's not too much trouble...)

Please don't bother with the versions mentioned in this bug anymore. Move on to 4.5.3 immediately (bug 290922).
Comment 11 Joe Jezak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-10 13:43:07 UTC
ppc64 marked stable.
Comment 12 Ben de Groot (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-10 14:58:17 UTC
Security: you could issue a joint GLSA for this bug and bug 283810, once hppa has marked 4.5.3 stable, which I've been told would probably be today. The advice would then be to upgrade to >=4.5.3 which has both issues fixed. Tho I don't know what your policy is on cases like this.
Comment 13 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-20 23:21:35 UTC
GLSA request filed.
Comment 14 Johannes Huber gentoo-dev 2012-03-28 11:03:58 UTC
Thanks all. Affected version gone from tree. Removing qt from cc.
Comment 15 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2013-09-12 22:15:25 UTC
No GLSA for you.
