Package        : libwmf
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem-Type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3376
Debian Bug     : 381538

It was discovered that an integer overflow in libwmf, the library to read
Windows Metafile Format files, can be exploited to execute arbitrary code
if a crafted WMF file is parsed.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.8.3-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.8.4-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libwmf package.

- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
