Sun OpenOffice.org < 2.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a program that may be affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Sun Microsystems
OpenOffice.org that is prior to version 2.2. It is, therefore,
affected by a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in its
handling of StarCalc documents. If a remote attacker can trick a user
into opening a specially crafted StarCalc document, the attacker can
execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the user's
privileges.

In addition, versions 2.0 - 2.1 reportedly have a heap-based buffer
overflow vulnerability that can be triggered when importing a
specially crafted WordPerfect document, resulting in arbitrary code
execution.
