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
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptioniDefense reported several overflow bugs in libwpd. An attacker could create a carefully crafted Word Perfect file that could cause an application linked with libwpd, such as OpenOffice, to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim.
OpenOffice.org-2.X contains an embedded copy of libpwd, and as such is susceptible to the same issues.
Updated packages have been rebuilt using the system libwpd to address this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
