Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Sean Larsson of iDefense Labs discovered that libwpd was vulnerable to
integer overflows. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
crafted WordPerfect document with an application that used libwpd, an
attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
