GLSA-200807-05 : OpenOffice.org: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 33472
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200807-05 (OpenOffice.org: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Sean Larsson (iDefense Labs) reported an integer overflow in the function rtl_allocateMemory() in the file sal/rtl/source/alloc_global.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
