Description

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, formula editor, and drawing program.

Several integer overflow bugs were found in the OpenOffice.org WMF file processor. An attacker could create a carefully crafted WMF file that could cause OpenOffice.org to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2006-5870)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported fix for this issue.
