libwpd is vulnerable to several heap overflows and an integer overflow.
|Package||app-text/libwpd on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.8.9|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.8.9|
libwpd is a library used to convert Wordperfect documents into other formats.
libwpd contains heap-based overflows in two functions that convert WordPerfect document tables. In addition, it contains an integer overflow in a text-conversion function.
An attacker could entice a user to convert a specially crafted WordPerfect file, resulting in a crash or possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running libwpd.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libwpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/libwpd-0.8.9"
