Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-17
(OpenOffice.org: Temporary files disclosure)

On start-up, OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 creates a temporary directory with
insecure permissions. When a document is saved, a compressed copy of it can
be found in that directory.

Impact :

A malicious local user could obtain the temporary files and thus read
documents belonging to other users.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
