    Package        : wv2
    Vulnerability  : integer overflow
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2197
    
    A boundary checking error has been discovered in wv2, a library for
    accessing Microsoft Word documents, which can lead to an integer
    overflow induced by processing word files.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain wv2 packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.2-1sarge1
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libwv packages.
