This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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-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
(CVE-2007-2754).

Impact :

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.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-2.2.1'
All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.2.1'
