High Nessus Plugin ID 59833

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

A stack-based buffer overflow was discovered in the Lotus Word Pro import filter in OpenOffice.org. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2685)

Huzaifa Sidhpurwala discovered that OpenOffice.org could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted Word document. (CVE-2011-2713)

Integer overflows were discovered in the graphics loading code of several different image types. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2012-1149)

Sven Jacobi discovered an integer overflow when processing Escher graphics records. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted PowerPoint file, an attacker could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2012-2334).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
