Synopsis

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-12 (OpenOffice.org: Multiple vulnerabilities)

John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the StarCalc parser and an input validation error when processing metacharacters in a link. Also OpenOffice.Org includes code from libwpd making it vulnerable to heap-based overflows when converting WordPerfect document tables (GLSA 200704-07).
Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted document, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running OpenOffice.org.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution

All OpenOffice.org users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-2.1.0-r1' All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.2.0'
