Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

A stack-based buffer overflow was discovered in the Lotus Word Pro
import filter in OpenOffice.org. The default compiler options for
affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of
service. (CVE-2011-2685)

Huzaifa Sidhpurwala discovered that OpenOffice.org could be made to
crash if it opened a specially crafted Word document. (CVE-2011-2713)

Integer overflows were discovered in the graphics loading code of
several different image types. If a user were tricked into opening a
specially crafted file, an attacker could cause OpenOffice.org to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user invoking the program. (CVE-2012-1149)

Sven Jacobi discovered an integer overflow when processing Escher
graphics records. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
crafted PowerPoint file, an attacker could cause OpenOffice.org to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user invoking the program. (CVE-2012-2334).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected openoffice.org-core package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
