Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that OpenOffice.org incorrectly handled certain
encryption tags in Open Document Text (.odt) files. 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.
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.
Update the affected openoffice.org-core package.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
