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.

A heap overflow flaw was found in the RTF import filer. An attacker could create a carefully crafted RTF file that could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2007-0245)

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