GLSA-200710-24 : OpenOffice.org: Heap-based buffer overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 27556
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-24 (OpenOffice.org: Heap-based buffer overflow)
iDefense Labs reported that the TIFF parsing code uses untrusted values to calculate buffer sizes, which can lead to an integer overflow resulting in heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted document, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the privileges 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-2.3.0' All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.3.0'
