Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-160: openoffice.org

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openoffice.org packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated OpenOffice packages that fix a vulnerability in neon exploitable by
a malicious DAV server are now available.

OpenOffice.org is an Open Source, community-developed, multi-platform
office productivity suite. OpenOffice internally uses inbuilt code
from neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library.

Versions of the neon client library up to and including 0.24.4 have been
found to contain a number of format string bugs. A possible hacker could create
a malicious WebDAV server in such a way as to permit arbitrary code
execution on the client should a user connect to it using OpenOffice. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2004-0179 to this issue.

Users of OpenOffice are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a patch correcting this issue.
