A pointer use-after-free flaw was found in the GD graphics library
embedded in libwmf. An attacker could create a specially crafted WMF
file that would cause an application using libwmf to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the
application when opened by a victim. (CVE-2009-1364)
After installing the update, all applications using libwmf must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
