Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2010-10-08 09:25:30 UTC
An array index error, leading to heap based buffer overflow, was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed RTF files.
If a user opened a specially-crafted RTF file, with broken RTF tables, in OpenOffice.org suite tool (oowriter), it could lead to denial of service (oowriter executable crash), or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the 
privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org Writer.
