Debian Bug     : 867717

A heap-based buffer underflow flaw was discovered in catdoc, a text
extractor for MS-Office files, which may lead to denial of service
(application crash) or have unspecified other impact, if a specially
crafted file is processed.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
0.94.4-1.1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your catdoc packages.
