Summary     : The shared library for the Qt 3 GUI toolkit
Description :
Qt is a GUI software toolkit which simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications
for the X Window System.

Qt is written in C++ and is fully object-oriented.

This package contains the shared library needed to run Qt 3
applications, as well as the README files for Qt 3.

Update Information:

This update fixes CVE-2015-1860, a buffer overflow when loading some specific invalid GIF image files, which could be exploited for denial of service (application crash) and possibly even arbitrary code execution attacks. The security patch is backported from Qt 4.

(Please note that Qt 3 is NOT vulnerable to the simultaneously published issues CVE-2015-1858 and CVE-2015-1859.)
