Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-09 13:45:32 EDT
A short integer overflow, leading to heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way OpenOffice.org Impress presentation aplication processed polygons in input document. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted Microsoft PowerPoint (PPT) file that, when opened, would cause simpress.bin executable to crash, or, possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the ooimpress tool.

Comment 14 Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-12 11:35:33 EDT
Statement: This issue is not planned to be fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, as its impact is mitigated by standard glibc protection mechanisms to cause only application abort. Red Hat Security Response Team does not consider a user-assisted crash (abort) of a client application, such as OpenOffice.org Impress tool, to be a security issue.
