 Problem Description:
 
 Multiple integer overflows in the WV library in wvWare (formerly
 mswordview) before 1.2.3, as used by AbiWord?, KWord, and possibly
 other products, allow user-assisted remote attackers to execute
 arbitrary code via a crafted Microsoft Word (DOC) file that produces

 large LFO nolfo value in the wvGetFLO_PLF function.

 Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
