GLSA-200707-02 : OpenOffice.org: Two buffer overflows
High Nessus Plugin ID 25660
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200707-02 (OpenOffice.org: Two buffer overflows)
John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered a heap-based buffer overflow when parsing the 'prdata' tag in RTF files where the first token is smaller than the second one (CVE-2007-0245). Additionally, the OpenOffice binary program is shipped with a version of FreeType that contains an integer signedness error in the n_points variable in file truetype/ttgload.c, which was covered by GLSA 200705-22 (CVE-2007-2754).
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll OpenOffice.org users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-2.2.1' All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.2.1'
