Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openoffice.org (MDKSA-2007:064)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24843

Synopsis

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

Description

iDefense reported several overflow bugs in libwpd. An attacker could create a carefully crafted Word Perfect file that could cause an application linked with libwpd, such as OpenOffice, to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim.

OpenOffice.org-2.X contains an embedded copy of libpwd, and as such is susceptible to the same issues.

Updated packages have been rebuilt using the system libwpd to address this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
