Mandrake Severity would vary based on the application, but likely would result in a Denial of Service (DoS).

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           pwlib
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:017
 Date:                   March 3rd, 2004

 Affected versions:	 9.1, 9.2

 Problem Description:

 The NISCC uncovered bugs in pwlib prior to version 1.6.0 via a test
 suite for the H.225 protocol.  An attacker could trigger these bugs
 by sending carefully crafted messages to an application that uses
 pwlib, and the severity would vary based on the application, but
 likely would result in a Denial of Service (DoS).
 The updated packages provide backported fixes from Craig Southeren
 of the OpenH323 project to protect against this issue.
