Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2007:001: OpenOffice_org

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the OpenOffice_org package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2007:001 (OpenOffice_org).


Security problems were fixed in the WMF and Enhanced WMF handling
in OpenOffice_org These could potentially be used to execute code
or crash OpenOffice when a user could be convinced to open specially
crafted document (for instance a document sent by E-mail).

This issue is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2006-5870.

openSUSE 10.2 is not affected by this problem, it already contains
the fixed OpenOffice_org 2.1 version.

Additionally the OpenOffice_org 2.0 version in SLED 10 was fitted with
hooks to add OfficeXML support with a later update.

Due to the very large size of this update and mirror lag it might
take some hours or days until the updates are available on our mirrors.
