Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated openoffice.org packages are now available.

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

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. A possible hacker 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 CVE-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.
