Description Tomas Hoger 2008-03-03 10:28:05 UTC
Security issue found by anonymous researcher was reported via iDefense to
OpenOffice.org upstream:

Manipulated Quattro Pro files can lead to heap overflows and arbitrary code

A security vulnerability with the way OpenOffice.org 2 processes Quattro Pro
files may allow a remote unprivileged user who provides a OpenOffice.org
document that is opened by a local user to execute arbitrary commands on the
system with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org.
