Updated libwmf packages that fix a security flaw are now available for Red

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
Libwmf is a library for reading and converting Windows MetaFile vector
graphics (WMF). Libwmf is used by packages such as The GIMP and ImageMagick.
An integer overflow flaw was discovered in libwmf. An attacker could
create a carefully crafted WMF flaw that could execute arbitrary code if
opened by a victim. (CVE-2006-3376).
Users of libwmf should update to these packages which contain a backported
security patch to correct this issue.
