The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated openoffice.org packages that correct security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop
applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation
manager, formula editor, and a drawing program.
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)
All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
All running instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted
for this update to take effect.
