The remote SuSE system is missing the security patch OpenOffice_org-1698
Following security problems were found in OpenOffice_org:
- CVE-2006-2198: A security vulnerability in OpenOffice.org
may make it possible to inject basic code into documents
which is executed upon loading of the document. The user
will not be asked or notified and the macro will have
full access to system resources with current user's
privileges. As a result, the macro may delete/replace
system files, read/send private data and/or cause
additional security issues.
Note that this attack works even with Macro execution
This attack allows remote attackers to modify files /
execute code as the user opening the document.
- CVE-2006-2199: A security vulnerability related to
OpenOffice.org documents may allow certain Java applets
to break through the 'sandbox' and therefore have full
access to system resources with current user privileges.
The offending Applets may be constructed to
destroy/replace system files, read or send private data,
and/or cause additional security issues.
Since Java applet support is only there for historical
reasons, as StarOffice was providing browser support, the
support has nown been disabled by default.
- CVE-2006-3117: A buffer overflow in the XML utf8
converter allows for a value to be written to an
arbitrary location in memory. This may lead to command
execution in the context of the current user.
Install the OpenOffice_org-1698 security patch by using 'yast', for example.
