<p>
AD-LAB has discovered a heap overflow in the "StgCompObjStream::Load()"
function when processing DOC documents.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could design a malicious DOC document containing a
specially crafted header which, when processed by OpenOffice.Org, would
result in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running the application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All OpenOffice.Org users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-office/openoffice-1.1.4-r1&quot;</code>
<p>
All OpenOffice.Org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-office/openoffice-bin-1.1.4-r1&quot;</code>
<p>
All OpenOffice.Org Ximian users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose app-office/openoffice-ximian</code>
<p>
Note to PPC users: There is no stable OpenOffice.Org fixed version for
the PPC architecture. Affected users should switch to the latest
OpenOffice.Org Ximian version.
</p>
<p>
Note to SPARC users: There is no stable OpenOffice.Org fixed version
for the SPARC architecture. Affected users should switch to the latest
OpenOffice.Org Ximian version.
