iDefense Labs reported multiple vulnerabilities in OpenOffice.org:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
multiple heap-based buffer overflows when parsing the "Attribute" and
"Font" Description records of Quattro Pro (QPRO) files
(CVE-2007-5745),
</li>
<li>
an integer overflow when parsing the EMR_STRETCHBLT record of an EMF
file, resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2007-5746),
</li>
<li>
an integer underflow when parsing Quattro Pro (QPRO) files, resulting
in an excessive loop and a stack-based buffer overflow
(CVE-2007-5747),
</li>
<li>
and a heap-based buffer overflow when parsing the
"DocumentSummaryInformation" stream in an OLE file (CVE-2008-0320).
</li>
</ul>
<p>
Furthermore, Will Drewry (Google Security) reported vulnerabilities in
the memory management of the International Components for Unicode
(CVE-2007-4770, CVE-2007-4771), which was resolved with GLSA 200803-20.
However, the binary version of OpenOffice.org uses an internal copy of
said library.

<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges 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-2.4.0&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-2.4.0&quot;</code>
