Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openoffice.org (MDVSA-2010:035)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

This updates provides a new OpenOffice.org version 3.1.1. It holds
security and bug fixes described as follow :

An integer underflow might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via crafted records in the document table of a Word document,
leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-0200).

A heap-based buffer overflow might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via unspecified records in a crafted Word document,
related to table parsing (CVE-2009-0201).

A heap-based buffer overflow allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted EMF file (CVE-2009-2139).

Multiple heap-based buffer overflows allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted EMF+ file (CVE-2009-2140).

OpenOffice's xmlsec uses a bundled Libtool which might load .la file
in the current working directory allowing local users to gain
privileges via a Trojan horse file. For enabling such vulnerability
xmlsec has to use --enable-crypto_dl building flag however it does
not, although the fix keeps protected against this threat whenever
that flag had been enabled (CVE-2009-3736).

Further this update provides following bug fixes :

OpenOffice.org is not properly configure to use the xdg-email
functionality of the FreeDesktop standard (#52195).

As the template desktop icons are not properly set, it's not presented
under the context menu of applications like Dolphin (#56439).

The Firefox plugin which enables viewing of OpenOffice documents
inside the browser was not enabled.
