Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2008:0538 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: openoffice.org security update 2008-06-13 03:03:12 UTC

Description Tomas Hoger 2008-06-09 12:42:37 UTC
OpenOffice.org 1.1.x packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4
shipped with certain libraries built with insecure RPATH set in the ELF header.
 RPATH was incorrectly set to '$ORIGIN' instead of $ORIGIN.

This issue can be exploited by a local user to run arbitrary code as some other
user if victim can be convinced to run openoffice in the attacker controlled
directory with specially crafted content.
