Description :

CVE-2009-0200 OpenOffice.org Word document Integer Underflow

CVE-2009-0201 OpenOffice.org Word document buffer overflow

An integer underflow flaw and a boundary error flaw, both possibly
leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, were found in the way
OpenOffice.org parses certain records in Microsoft Word documents. An
attacker could create a specially-crafted Microsoft Word document,
which once opened by an unsuspecting user, could cause OpenOffice.org
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions
of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2009-0200, CVE-2009-0201)

Allrunning instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted
for this update to take effect.

Note: The openoffice.org2 update for SL4 has been delayed.
