Description

Chris Evans discovered a buffer overflow in the RTF import module of KOffice. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted RTF file, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the AbiWord user.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
