Apache OpenOffice < 4.1.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 94199
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Apache OpenOffice installed on the remote host is a version prior to 4.1.3. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A memory corruption issue exists in the Impress tool due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling elements in invalid presentations. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted MetaActions in an ODP or OTP file, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1513)
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to the use of an unquoted Windows search path. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-6803)
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to the use of a fixed path to load system binaries. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted DLL file in the library path, to inject and execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-6804)
SolutionUpgrade to Apache OpenOffice version 4.1.3 or later. Alternatively, the vendor has released a hotfix for 4.1.2 that resolves CVE-2016-1513. Note that the hotfix only resolves this one vulnerability.
