Description Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-05 08:40:22 UTC

libwmf is vulnerable to a integer overflow vuln, leading to the possible execution of arbitrary code by enticing a user to open a malicious WMF file.

This package has no maintainer, no herd.

I CC: antarus@ of the treecleaners team for information.

Mandriva fixed this issue. Please provide an updated ebuild.

We might need to call for a new maintainer on -dev.
Comment 7 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-03 00:06:55 UTC
maintainer wanted mail sent to -dev.
Comment 8 Enrico 'nekrad' Weigelt 2006-08-03 09:57:42 UTC
I'll have a look at it. 

It first has to go through the whole CSDB/OSS-QM procedure (file crawler, sysroot'ed crossbuilds, pkgconfig'ing, ...).
