The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Sean Larsson found a heap overflow flaw in the OpenOffice memory
allocator. If a carefully crafted file was opened by a victim, an
attacker could use the flaw to crash OpenOffice.org or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-2152)
It was discovered that certain libraries in the Scientific Linux 3 and
4 openoffice.org packages had an insecure relative RPATH (runtime
library search path) set in the ELF (Executable and Linking Format)
header. A local user able to convince another user to run OpenOffice
in an attacker-controlled directory, could run arbitrary code with the
privileges of the victim. (CVE-2008-2366)
