http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libwpd
Date : March 16, 2007
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

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.
