Ubuntu Security Notice USN-374-1          November 01, 2006
wv vulnerability
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10:
  libwv-1.2-1                              1.2.1-2ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

An integer overflow was discovered in the DOC file parser of the wv 
library.  By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted MSWord 
(.DOC) file, remote attackers could execute arbitrary code with the 
user's privileges.
