The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-12
(OpenOffice.org: Multiple vulnerabilities)
John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered a stack-based buffer
overflow in the StarCalc parser and an input validation error when
processing metacharacters in a link. Also OpenOffice.Org includes code
from libwpd making it vulnerable to heap-based overflows when
converting WordPerfect document tables (GLSA 200704-07).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the
rights of the user running OpenOffice.org.
There is no known workaround at this time.
