Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2010-10-07 06:25:10 EDT
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way OpenOffice.org imported Microsoft Word Binary File Format (.DOC) files with certain user defined list styles (WW8). If a user opened a specially-crafted DOC file in OpenOffice.org
suite tool (oowriter), it could lead to denial of service (oowriter executable
crash), or possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user 
running OpenOffice.org Writer.
