Mandriva: Updated openoffice.org packages to address libwpd heap overflow vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake iDefense reported several overflow bugs in libwpd. An attacker could create a carefully crafted Word Perfect file that could cause an application linked with libwpd, such as OpenOffice, to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. OpenOffice.org-2.X contains an embedded copy of libpwd, and as such is susceptible to the same issues. Updated packages have been rebuilt using the system libwpd to address this issue.
