Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in wvWare, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and
potentially compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to integer overflows within the
'wvGetLFO_records()' and 'wvGetLFO_PLF()' functions. These can be
exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows by e.g. tricking a user
to open a specially crafted Microsoft Word document with an
application using the library.
