1. Summary:

Updated openoffice.org packages are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Problem description:

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop
applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager,
formula editor, and drawing program.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was found in the OpenOffice.org DOC file
processor. An attacker could create a carefully crafted DOC file in such a
way that it could cause OpenOffice.org to execute arbitrary code when the
file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0941 to this issue.

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported fixes for these issues.

3. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
