package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
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.
An integer overflow flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the
way OpenOffice.org processed an invalid Escher graphics records length in
Microsoft Office PowerPoint documents. An attacker could provide a
specially-crafted Microsoft Office PowerPoint document that, when opened,
would cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2012-2334)
Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,
were found in the JPEG, PNG, and BMP image file reader implementations in
OpenOffice.org. An attacker could provide a specially-crafted JPEG, PNG,
or BMP image file that, when opened in an OpenOffice.org application, would
cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-1149)
