word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, data charting,
formula editing, and file conversion facilities.

<p>
Two heap-based buffer overflows when processing WMF files
(CVE-2008-2237) and EMF files (CVE-2008-2238) were discovered. Dmitry
E. Oboukhov also reported an insecure temporary file usage within the
senddoc script (CVE-2008-4937).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code. A local
attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files on
the system. Both cases happen with the privileges 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-3.0.0&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-3.0.0&quot;</code>
