Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-02 15:00:35 UTC
An integer wrap-around flaw has been reported in the way cabextract
processed certain Cabinet (*.cab) archive files. If a local user was
tricked into opening a specially-crafted *.cab archive in test archive
mode, it could lead to cabextract executable crash.

cabextract (together with wine and openoffice.org per libmspack upstream) should use the system-wide libmspack library instead of an embedded copy
