Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libwmf (MDKSA-2006:132)

High Nessus Plugin ID 23882


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


Integer overflow in player.c in libwmf, as used in multiple products including (1) wv, (2) abiword, (3) freetype, (4) gimp, (5) libgsf, and (6) imagemagick allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the MaxRecordSize header field in a WMF file.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
