Description Mark J. Cox 2006-11-27 06:33:45 EST
The OpenOffice folks have a patch to catch corrupt wmf/emf files with out of
bounds values in the emf/wmf file.  An attacker could create a malicious file in
such a way it may be able to execute arbitrary code if opened in OpenOffice by a
victim.  Since this requires user interaction it is severity important.


Affects: RHEL3, RHEL4

Any news on this update?
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2006-12-05 03:59:45 EST
There's a lot of building in 5 OOos :-)

RHEL-3: openoffice.org-1.1.2-35.2.0.EL3
RHEL-4: openoffice.org-1.1.5-5.6.0.EL4
RHEL-5: openoffice_org-2.0.4-5.4.12 (bug 217348) 
FC-5:   openoffice.org-2.0.2-5.20.2
FC-6:   openoffice.org-2.0.4-5.5.7

I suspect the embargo date should be pushed out to 12.12.2006 to match 2.1
