I forwarded my message to the security team on Monday 
(security at qt-project.org <mailto:security at qt-project.org>).
I didn't get any answer except this:

Your mail to 'Security' with the subject

     Fwd: Re: [Development] WebSocket Module [CVE-2018-21035]

The 96 hours delay expired.

What to do now ?
