Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

AD-LAB reports that a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability exists
in OpenOffice's handling of DOC documents. When reading a DOC document
16 bit from a 32 bit integer is used for memory allocation, but the
full 32 bit is used for further processing of the document. This can
allow an attacker to crash OpenOffice, or potentially execute
arbitrary code as the user running OpenOffice, by tricking an user
into opening a specially crafted DOC document.
