Description

The version of OpenOffice 2.x installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.4.2. Such versions are affected by several issues :

  • Specially crafted WMF files can lead to heap-based overflows and arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-2237).

  • Specially crafted EMF files can lead to heap-based overflows and arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-2238).
