User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake iDefense reported several overflow bugs in libwpd. An attacker could create a carefully crafted Word Perfect file that could cause an application linked with libwpd, such as OpenOffice, to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
