Detail

Problem Description:

Updated openoffice.org packages that correct multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 RHEL Optional Productivity Applications (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ppc, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet application, presentation manager, formula editor, and a drawing program.

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed XPM files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could lead to arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running OpenOffice.org. Note: This flaw affects embedded XPM files in OpenOffice.org documents as well as stand-alone XPM files. (CVE-2009-2949)

An integer underflow flaw and a boundary error flaw, both possibly leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, were found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed certain records in Microsoft Word documents. An attacker could create a specially-crafted Microsoft Word document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2009-3301, CVE-2009-3302)

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw, leading to memory corruption, was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed GIF files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted document, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, could cause OpenOffice.org to crash. Note: This flaw affects embedded GIF files in OpenOffice.org documents as well as stand-alone GIF files. (CVE-2009-2950)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

527512 - CVE-2009-2950 openoffice.org: GIF file parsing heap overflow 527540 - CVE-2009-2949 openoffice.org: integer overflow in XPM processing 533038 - CVE-2009-3301 OpenOffice.org Word sprmTDefTable Memory Corruption 533043 - CVE-2009-3302 OpenOffice.org Word sprmTSetBrc Memory Corruption

Title: DSA-1995 openoffice.org -- several vulnerabilities
Description: Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the OpenOffice.org office suite. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: It was discovered that macro security settings were insufficiently enforced for VBA macros. It was discovered that the W3C XML Signature recommendation contains a protocol-level vulnerability related to HMAC output truncation. This also affects the integrated libxmlsec library. Sebastian Apelt discovered that an integer overflow in the XPM import code may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Sebastian Apelt and Frank Reissner discovered that a buffer overflow in the GIF import code may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Nicolas Joly discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the parser for Word document files, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
