Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-25 (OpenOffice.org: User-assisted arbitrary code execution)

The HSQLDB engine, as used in Openoffice.org, does not properly enforce
restrictions to SQL statements.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary Java
code with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
