Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-13 (OpenOffice.org: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Two heap-based buffer overflows when processing WMF files
(CVE-2008-2237) and EMF files (CVE-2008-2238) were discovered. Dmitry
E. Oboukhov also reported an insecure temporary file usage within the
senddoc script (CVE-2008-4937).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code. A local
attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files on
the system. Both cases happen with the privileges of the user running
the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
