High Nessus Plugin ID 60731

Synopsis

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

Description

CVE-2009-2950 openoffice.org: GIF file parsing heap overflow

CVE-2009-2949 openoffice.org: integer overflow in XPM processing

CVE-2009-3301 OpenOffice.org Word sprmTDefTable Memory Corruption

CVE-2009-3302 OpenOffice.org Word sprmTSetBrc Memory Corruption

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed XPM files. An attacker could create a specially crafted document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could lead to arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running OpenOffice.org. Note: This flaw affects embedded XPM files in OpenOffice.org documents as well as stand-alone XPM files. (CVE-2009-2949)

An integer underflow flaw and a boundary error flaw, both possibly leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, were found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed certain records in Microsoft Word documents. An attacker could create a specially crafted Microsoft Word document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2009-3301, CVE-2009-3302)

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw, leading to memory corruption, was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed GIF files. An attacker could create a specially crafted document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could cause OpenOffice.org to crash. Note: This flaw affects embedded GIF files in OpenOffice.org documents as well as stand-alone GIF files. (CVE-2009-2950)

All running instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected openoffice.org, openoffice.org-i18n and / or openoffice.org-libs packages.
