The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-07
(OpenOffice.org: EMF/WMF file handling vulnerabilities)
John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered integer overflows in the
EMR_POLYPOLYGON and EMR_POLYPOLYGON16 processing and an error within
the handling of META_ESCAPE records.
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause heap overflows
and potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running OpenOffice.org by enticing the user to open a document
containing a malicious WMF/EMF file.
There is no known workaround known at this time.
