<p> is an open source office productivity suite, including
word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, data charting,
formula editing, and file conversion facilities.
Internal security audits by have discovered three
security vulnerabilities related to Java applets, macros and the XML
file format parser.
<ul><li>Specially crafted Java applets can
break through the "sandbox".</li>
<li>Specially crafted macros make it
possible to inject BASIC code into documents which is executed when the
document is loaded.</li>
<li>Loading a malformed XML file can cause a
buffer overflow.</li>
<impact type="normal">
An attacker might exploit these vulnerabilities to escape the Java
sandbox, execute arbitrary code or BASIC code with the permissions of
the user running
Disabling Java applets will protect against the vulnerability in the
handling of Java applets. There are no workarounds for the macro and
file format vulnerabilities.
All users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-office/openoffice-2.0.3&quot;</code>
