Moore" <rich@....org> Subject: CVE Request -- Qt (x < 4.8.4): QML XmlHttpRequest insecure redirection Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors, Qt upstream has released 4.8.4 version correcting one security issue: An information disclosure flaw was found in the way XMLHttpRequest object implementation in Qt, a software toolkit for developing applications, performed management of certain HTTP responses. Previous implementation allowed redirection from HTTP protocol to file schemas. Also the redirection handling was performed automatically by QML application and could not be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause QML application in an unauthorized way to read local file content by causing the HTTP response for the application to be a redirect to a file: URL (file scheme).

Thank you && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
