Our libwmf package has been vulnerable for a while to various security issues (CVE-2015-0848, CVE-2015-4588, CVE-2015-4695, CVE-2015-4696), some of them leading to arbitrary code execution, and it is now very unlikely to see a new upstream release. Other distributions have patched with similar patches, and I think we should do the same. Here are the patches applied by the Fedora / Red Hat family, would you mind taking a look at them?


Let me know if I can help!
