Apache OpenOffice < 3.4.0 Multiple Memory Corruption Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 59191


The remote Windows host has a program affected by multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities.


The version of Apache OpenOffice installed on the remote host is prior to 3.4.0. It is, therefore, affected by several memory corruption issues :

- An integer overflow error exists in 'vclmi.dll' that could allow heap-based buffer overflows when handling embedded image objects. (CVE-2012-1149)

- A memory overwrite error exists in 'libwpd' that could be triggered when processing WordPerfect documents. This memory overwrite may lead to arbitrary code execution.

- Memory checking errors exist in 'filter/source/msfilter msdffimp.cxx' that could be triggered when processing PowerPoint graphics records.
These errors could allow denial of service attacks.


Upgrade to Apache OpenOffice version 3.4.0 or later.
