patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-24

to calculate buffer sizes, which can lead to an integer overflow
resulting in heap-based buffer overflow.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org.

Workaround :
