MDKSA-2006:202: wv Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the wv package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:202 (wv).

Multiple integer overflows in the WV library in wvWare (formerly
mswordview) before 1.2.3, as used by AbiWord?, KWord, and possibly
other products, allow user-assisted remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted Microsoft Word (DOC) file that produces
(1) large LFO clfolvl values in the wvGetLFO_records function or (2) a
large LFO nolfo value in the wvGetFLO_PLF function.
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
