CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2006-5870

Details

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.

Several integer overflow bugs were found in the OpenOffice.org WMF file
processor. An attacker could create a carefully crafted WMF file that could
cause OpenOffice.org to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by
a victim. (CVE-2006-5870)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported fix for this issue.
