Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59171
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-482-1 (openoffice.org(2)/-amd64)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-482-1 (openoffice.org(2)/-amd64)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to openoffice.org(2)/-amd64
announced via advisory USN-482-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

John Heasman discovered that OpenOffice did not correctly validate the
sizes of tags in RTF documents. If a user were tricked into opening a
specially crafted document, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary
code with user privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
openoffice.org-core 2.0.2-2ubuntu12.4
openoffice.org2-base 2.0.2-2ubuntu12.4

Ubuntu 6.10:
openoffice.org-core 2.0.4-0ubuntu6

Ubuntu 7.04:
openoffice.org-core 2.2.0-1ubuntu4

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart OpenOffice, or
reboot your computer, to effect the necessary changes.
