Description :

The StgCompObjStream::Load() failed to check the validity of a length
field in documents. If a possible hacker tricked a user to open a specially
crafted OpenOffice file, this triggered a buffer overflow which could
lead to arbitrary code execution with the rights of the user
opening the document.

The update for Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) also contains a
translation update: The "openoffice.org-l10n-xh" package now contains
actual Xhosa translations (the previous version just shipped English
strings).

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- openoffice.org-1.1.3-8ubuntu2.3 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- openoffice.org-bin-1.1.3-8ubuntu2.3 (Ubuntu 5.04)
