GLSA-200704-07 : libwpd: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 25020
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-07 (libwpd: Multiple vulnerabilities)
libwpd contains heap-based overflows in two functions that convert WordPerfect document tables. In addition, it contains an integer overflow in a text-conversion function.
An attacker could entice a user to convert a specially crafted WordPerfect file, resulting in a crash or possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running libwpd.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libwpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-text/libwpd-0.8.9'
