Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2007:036: libwmf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libwmf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:036 (libwmf).

Buffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in the GD
Graphics Library 2.0.33 and earlier permits remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font.
Libwmf uses an embedded copy of the gd source and may also be affected
by this issue.
Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
