Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61129
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0538
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0538.

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop
applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager,
formula editor, and drawing program.

Sean Larsson found a heap overflow flaw in the OpenOffice memory allocator.
If a carefully crafted file was opened by a victim, an attacker could use
the flaw to crash OpenOffice.org or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2008-2152)

It was discovered that certain libraries in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
and 4 openoffice.org packages had an insecure relative RPATH (runtime
library search path) set in the ELF (Executable and Linking Format) header.
A local user able to convince another user to run OpenOffice in an
attacker-controlled directory, could run arbitrary code with the privileges
of the victim. (CVE-2008-2366)

All users of openoffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported fixes which correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
