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

Several integer overflow bugs were found in the OpenOffice.org WMF file

cause OpenOffice.org to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by
a victim. (CVE-2006-5870)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported fix for this issue.
