Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-01-22 10:43:58 EST
The version of libwpd in openoffice.org in RHEL4, RHEL3 is affected by the WP6
issue only.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #222808 +++

iDefense discovered a TablesGroup Heap Overflow Vulnerability in libwpd.  We're
waiting on the full details but it's likely that an attacker could create a
malicious WordPerfect file that could execute arbitrary code if opened by a
victim in an application using libwpd such as OpenOffice.

No date on embargo

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2007-01-22 10:51:15 EST
As well as the libwpd in the old 1.1.X for RHEL-4, there's also a libwpd/RHEL-4
dir, did we ship this standalone libwpd for RHEL-4 as well ?
Comment 9 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-02-21 05:40:16 EST
embargo was moved to March 6th
Comment 10 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-03-16 10:14:21 EDT
removing embargo, now public http://libwpd.sourceforge.net/news.html
Comment 11 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-03-20 15:06:02 EDT
WP6GeneralTextPacket::_readContents() think has another CVE number: CVE-2007-1466
Comment 12 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-03-20 17:05:39 EDT
Yes, so our open office packages in RHEL3 and RHEL4 only have the flaw in 
WP6GeneralTextPacket::_readContents() (CVE-2007-1466) and not the other flaws in
CVE-2007-0002.  Therefore changing the CVE name to CVE-2007-1466 and removing
CVE-2007-0002 which doesn't apply to those platforms.
