Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openoffice.org (MDVSA-2008:137)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37435

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Integer overflow in the rtl_allocateMemory function in sal/rtl/source/alloc_global.c in OpenOffice.org (OOo) 2.0 through 2.4 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2008-2152)

Also, according to bug #38874 decimal numbers on Hebrew documents would appear as Arabic characters. Another issue (#39799) is with measurements units configuration to format paragraphs on the menu:
(Tools -> Options -> OpenOffice.org Writer -> General). Even setting to centimeters on (Indent & Spacing) option it shows as characters (ch) on (Indents & Spacing) configuration on the menu: (Format -> Paragraph -> Indents & Spacing). Moreover, a document holding Notes edited on Microsoft Office would not show when opened with OpenOffice.

These and a number of other OpenOffice.org issues were fixed by the new version provided in this update.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
