Debian Security Advisory DSA 1100-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
June 15th, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : wv2
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-2197

A boundary checking error has been discovered in wv2, a library for
accessing Microsoft Word documents, which can lead to an integer
overflow induced by processing word files.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain wv2 packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.2-1sarge1

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libwv packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
