Title: Antiword: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201502-09)
Date: February 07, 2015
A buffer overflow vulnerability in Antiword could result in
execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
Antiword is a free MS Word reader.
Vulnerable: < 0.37-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.37-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A buffer overflow vulnerability has been found in wordole.c in Antiword.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document using Antiword, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Antiword users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/antiword-0.37-r1"
