    Michal Zalewski and Hanno Boeck discovered several vulnerabilities in
    unrtf, a RTF to other formats converter, leading to a denial of service
    (application crash) or, potentially, the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.21.5-3~deb7u1. This update is based on a new upstream version
    of unrtf including additional bug fixes, new features and incompatible
    changes (especially PostScript support is dropped).
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable
    distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.21.5-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your unrtf packages.
