New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.6


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


iDefense reported several integer overflow bugs in libwpd, a library for handling WordPerfect documents. Attackers were able to exploit these with carefully crafted Word Perfect files that could cause an application linked with libwpd to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade the libwpd package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.1-1sarge1.
