Debian Security Advisory DSA-2473-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer May 16, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : openoffice.org Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : local (remote) Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-1149

Tielei Wang discovered that OpenOffice.org does not allocate a large enough memory region when processing a specially crafted JPEG object, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow and potentially arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.1-11+squeeze5.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.4.5-1 of the libreoffice package.

We recommend that you upgrade your openoffice.org packages.
