Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: January 13, 2006
Updated: February 26, 2007
Bug(s): #118101
ID: 200601-09

Synopsis

There is a flaw in Wine in the handling of Windows Metafiles (WMF) files, which could possibly result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Wine is a free implementation of Windows APIs for Unix-like systems.

Affected Packages

Package: app-emulation/wine
Vulnerable: < 20060000
Vulnerable: > 20040000
Unaffected: >= 0.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

H D Moore discovered that Wine implements the insecure-by-design SETABORTPROC GDI Escape function for Windows Metafile (WMF) files.

Impact

An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Windows Metafile (WMF) file from within a Wine executed Windows application, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running Wine.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Wine users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/wine-0.9.0"


References
