Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-06-04 07:17:21 UTC
From ${URL} :

A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the libwmf library processed WMF files containing 
BMP images. A specially crafted WMF file could cause an application using libwmf to crash or, 
possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Original report:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
