Description Vincent Danen 2009-10-06 13:47:30 EDT
It was reported that it was possible to trigger a heap overflow leading to heap memory corruption in the way that OpenOffice.org parsed GIF files.  This is not restricted to GIF files alone, but to embedded GIF files in OpenOffice.org documents.  The bug is found in GIFLZWDecompressor::GIFLZWDecompressor (source/filter.vcl/lgif/decode.cxx) and is triggered during LZW decompression of GIF file content.
