Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

A heap overflow flaw was found in the RTF import filer. An attacker
could create a carefully crafted RTF file that could cause
OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file
was opened by a victim. (CVE-2007-0245)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported fix to correct this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
