Scientific Linux Security Update : openoffice.org2 on SL4.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A flaw was found in the way OpenOffice.org enforced a macro security
setting for macros, written in the Python scripting language, that
were embedded in OpenOffice.org documents. If a user were tricked into
opening a specially crafted OpenOffice.org document and previewed the
macro directory structure, it could lead to Python macro execution
even if macro execution was disabled. (CVE-2010-0395)

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