|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: libwpd: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200704-07)
Date: April 06, 2007
libwpd is vulnerable to several heap overflows and an integer overflow.
libwpd is a library used to convert Wordperfect documents into other
Vulnerable: < 0.8.9
Unaffected: >= 0.8.9
Architectures: All supported architectures
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.
All libwpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/libwpd-0.8.9"
