Description

It was discovered that OpenOffice.org, a full-featured office productivity suite that provides a near drop-in replacement for Microsoft® Office, is not properly handling python macros embedded in an office document. This allows an attacker to perform user-assisted execution of arbitrary code in certain use cases of the python macro viewer component.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.4.1+dfsg-1+lenny7.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openoffice.org packages.
