The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200707-02
(OpenOffice.org: Two buffer overflows)
John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered a heap-based buffer overflow
when parsing the 'prdata' tag in RTF files where the first token is
smaller than the second one (CVE-2007-0245). Additionally, the
OpenOffice binary program is shipped with a version of FreeType that
contains an integer signedness error in the n_points variable in file
truetype/ttgload.c, which was covered by GLSA 200705-22
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.
