Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61950
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-677-1 (openoffice.org-amd64)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-677-1 (openoffice.org-amd64)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to openoffice.org-amd64
announced via advisory USN-677-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

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

Details follow:

Multiple memory overflow flaws were discovered in OpenOffice.org's handling of
WMF and EMF files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
document, a remote attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code with user
privileges. (CVE-2008-2237, CVE-2008-2238)

Dmitry E. Oboukhov discovered that senddoc, as included in OpenOffice.org,
created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race
condition to create or overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking
the program. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2008-4937)

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
openoffice.org-core 2.0.2-2ubuntu12.7-2

Ubuntu 7.10:
openoffice.org-core 1:2.3.0-1ubuntu5.5

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
openoffice.org-common 1:2.4.1-1ubuntu2.1
openoffice.org-core 1:2.4.1-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
openoffice.org-core 1:2.4.1-11ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart OpenOffice.org to effect
the necessary changes.
