    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.
