Description Mark J. Cox 2007-01-16 09:56:04 UTC
iDefense discovered a TablesGroup Heap Overflow Vulnerability in libwpd.  We're
waiting on the full details but it's likely that an attacker could create a
malicious WordPerfect file that could execute arbitrary code if opened by a
victim in an application using libwpd such as OpenOffice.

No date on embargo; not sure if this will make it before GA or need a 0day.
