Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71204
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0411
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:0411.

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop
applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet application,
presentation manager, formula editor, and a drawing program. OpenOffice.org
embeds a copy of Raptor, which provides parsers for Resource Description
Framework (RDF) files.

An XML External Entity expansion flaw was found in the way Raptor processed
RDF files. If OpenOffice.org were to open a specially-crafted file (such
as an OpenDocument Format or OpenDocument Presentation file), it could
possibly allow a remote attacker to obtain a copy of an arbitrary local
file that the user running OpenOffice.org had access to. A bug in the way
Raptor handled external entities could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2012-0037)

Red Hat would like to thank Timothy D. Morgan of VSR for reporting this
issue.

All OpenOffice.org users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct this issue. All running
instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted for this update
to take effect.

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
