Comment 2 Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-12 14:25:45 UTC
The impact of these two flaws, as present in openoffice.org-impress
package, shipped with Fedora release of 12 and 13 is mitigated by
standard glibc protection mechanisms (it properly detects the invalid
free() [CVE-2010-2935] and invalid pointer dereference [CVE-2010-2936]
attempts and aborts the relevant binary sooner, it can do any further
harm).

Red Hat Security Response Team does not consider a user-assisted crash
of a client application, such as OpenOffice.org Impress tool, to be
a security issue.
