Debian DSA-1268-1 : libwpd - integer overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 24835

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade the libwpd package.

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