Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4308
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a script injection attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of OpenOffice.org that is affected by a remote code execution flaw. The root of the flaw appears to be the HSQLDB database engine. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a user to open a file that was handled by the OpenOffice HSQLDB database engine. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary Java code on the remote system.
