: The QtWeb Browser application is vulnerable to Insecure DLL Hijacking 
: Vulnerability. Similar terms that describe this vulnerability have been 
: come up with Remote Binary Planting, and Insecure DLL 
: Loading/Injection/Hijacking/Preloading.

: The QtWeb Browser application passes an insufficiently qualified path in 
: loading an external library, "wintab32.dll" when a user opens its 
: associated file with extensions - htm, html, mhtml.
: 3.3 build 043 and lower

Virtually all Qt based applications will be vulnerable to this.

We've seen the first wave of reports of "X is vulnerable, looking for Y 
librari", but we haven't seen a lot of details or follow-up on where the 
inclusion of the library comes from. Popular libraries and cross-platform 
frameworks that are vulnerable, will in turn affect any product or 
software that uses them.
