<p>
OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite, including word
processing, spreadsheet, presentation, data charting, formula editing
and file conversion facilities. libcurl, which is included in
OpenOffice.org, is a free and easy-to-use client-side library for
transferring files with URL syntaxes, supporting numerous protocols.
</p>

<description>
<p>
OpenOffice.org includes libcurl code. This libcurl code is
vulnerable to a heap overflow when it tries to parse a URL that exceeds
a 256-byte limit (GLSA 200512-09).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could entice a user to call a specially crafted URL
with OpenOffice.org, potentially resulting 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 binary users should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-office/openoffice-bin-2.0.2&quot;</code>
