Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:082 (OpenOffice.org).



AD-LAB discovered a heap overflow in the StgCompObjStream::Load() function when
OpenOffice.org processes DOC documents. If a possible hacker created a malicious DOC
document that contained a specially crafted header, it could execute arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running OpenOffice.org.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
