> (3) MODERATE: OpenOffice.org and LibWPD Multiple Vulnerabilities
> Affected:
> OpenOffice.org versions 1.x and 2.x
> 
> Description: OpenOffice.org, a popular open source office 
> suite included
> with many Unix, Unix-like, and Linux systems, contains multiple
> vulnerabilities:
> (1) A specially-crafted Word Perfect document could trigger several
> integer overflows in the "LibWPD" library, used to parse Word Perfect
> files. Successfully exploiting these integer overflows could allow an
> attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current
> user. Note that "LibWPD" is used internally by OpenOffice.org and by
> other open source word processors, such as AbiWord.
> (2) A specially crafted link in an OpenOffice.org document 
> could execute
> arbitrary commands when the link in clicked by a user.
> (3) A specially crafted OpenOffice.org document could trigger a buffer
> overflow in the "Calc spreadsheet" portion of the application.
> Successfully exploiting this buffer overflow could allow the attacker
> to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user.
> Note that since all of the affected code is open source, technical
> details are available via source code analysis. Depending on operating
> system and configuration, malicious files may be opened without
> prompting, after downloading.
> 
> Status: OpenOffice.org confirmed, updates available.
