Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-12 (OpenOffice.org: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Internal security audits by OpenOffice.org have discovered three     security vulnerabilities related to Java applets, macros and the XML     file format parser.
Specially crafted Java applets can     break through the 'sandbox'.
Specially crafted macros make it     possible to inject BASIC code into documents which is executed when the     document is loaded.
Loading a malformed XML file can cause a     buffer overflow.

Impact :

An attacker might exploit these vulnerabilities to escape the Java     sandbox, execute arbitrary code or BASIC code with the permissions of     the user running OpenOffice.org.

Workaround :

Disabling Java applets will protect against the vulnerability in the     handling of Java applets. There are no workarounds for the macro and     file format vulnerabilities.
