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-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.
Impact :

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.
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-2.3.0' All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.3.0'
