Several issues were discovered in qtbase-opensource-src, a
cross-platform C++ application framework, which could lead to
denial-of-service via application crash. Additionally, this update
fixes a problem affecting vlc, where it would start without a GUI.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.7.1+dfsg-3+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your qtbase-opensource-src packages.
