The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated libwpd packages to correct a security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
libwpd is a library for reading and converting Word Perfect documents.
iDefense reported several overflow bugs in libwpd. An attacker could
create a carefully crafted Word Perfect file that could cause an
application linked with libwpd, such as OpenOffice, to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim.
All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported fix for this issue.
Red Hat would like to thank Fridrich Strba for alerting us to these
issues and providing a patch.
