Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the wine package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:014 (wine).

A vulnerability was discovered by H D Moore in Wine which implements the
SETABORTPROC GDI Escape function for Windows Metafile (WMF) files. This could
be abused by a possible hacker who is able to entice a user to open a specially
crafted WMF file from within a Wine-execute Windows application, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user
runing Wine. The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
