Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : wine (MDKSA-2006:014)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20793


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A vulnerability was discovered by H D Moore in Wine which implements the SETABORTPROC GDI Escape function for Windows Metafile (WMF) files.
This could be abused by an attacker who is able to entice a user to open a specially crafted WMF file from within a Wine-execute Windows application, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user runing Wine.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.


Update the affected packages.
