Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a program affected by multiple buffer overflows.

Description

The version of OpenOffice 2.x installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.4.2. Such versions are affected by several issues :

- Specially crafted WMF files can lead to heap-based overflows and arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-2237). - Specially crafted EMF files can lead to heap-based overflows and arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-2238).

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.4.2 or higher.
