CVE-2007-0239 hyperlink escaping issue
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:41 EST
Some shell characters are not escaped in hyperlinks. If a victim loads a OO
file that contains a malicious hyperlink it could run shell commands as the
victim if they click on it.
However this issue is mitigated somewhat as you can't do whitespace and many
special characters, so you're really limited to running single existing commands
with no arguments as the unprivileged user.
Already public in the bugs, but will be announced on 20070227
build underway, will be RHEL-5:openoffice_org-2.0.4-22.214.171.124
done as RHEL-5:openoffice_org-2.0.4-126.96.36.199
oops, need one off the .17, not the .16,
RHEL-5:openoffice.org-2.0.4-188.8.131.52 build underway
