John Heasman of NGSSoftware has discovered a heap-based buffer overflow
when parsing the "prdata" tag in RTF files where the first token is
smaller than the second one (CVE-2007-0245). Additionally, the
OpenOffice binary program is shipped with a version of FreeType that
contains an integer signedness error in the n_points variable in file
truetype/ttgload.c, which was covered by GLSA 200705-22
(CVE-2007-2754).

<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the
rights of the user running OpenOffice.org.
</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-2.2.1&quot;</code>

All OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
