Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-550-1 wv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

iDEFENSE discovered a buffer overflow in the wv library, used to
convert and preview Microsoft Word documents. A possible hacker could
create a specially crafted document that could lead wvHtml to execute
arbitrary code on the victims machine.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.1+rvt-2woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your wv package.
