RHEL 5 : openoffice.org (RHSA-2007:0069)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63838

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated openoffice.org packages to correct security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, formula editor, and drawing program.

John Heasman discovered a stack overflow in the StarCalc parser in OpenOffice. An attacker could create a carefully crafted StarCalc file that could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2007-0238)

Flaws were discovered in the way OpenOffice.org handled hyperlinks. An attacker could create an OpenOffice.org document which could run commands if a victim opened the file and clicked on a malicious hyperlink. (CVE-2007-0239)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported fix to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
