CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'openoffice.org' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
openoffice.org on CentOS 4

Technical Details:
OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet application, presentation manager, formula editor, and a drawing program. An array index error and an integer signedness error were found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed certain Rich Text Format (RTF) files. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted RTF file that, when opened, would cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2010-3451, CVE-2010-3452) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw and an array index error were found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed certain Microsoft Office Word documents. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted Microsoft Office Word document that, when opened, would cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2010-3453, CVE-2010-3454) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way OpenOffice.org parsed certain TARGA (Truevision TGA) files. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted TARGA file. If a document containing this specially-crafted TARGA file was opened, or if a user tried to insert the file into an existing document, it would cause OpenOffice.org to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2010-4643) A directory traversal flaw was found in the way OpenOffice.org handled the installation of XSLT filter descriptions Linux Distribution Packaged in Java Archive (JAR) files, as well as the installation of OpenOffice.org Extension (.oxt) files. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted XSLT filter description or extension file that, when opened, would cause the OpenOffice.org Extension Manager to modify files accessible to the user installing the JAR or extension file. (CVE-2010-3450) Red Hat would like to thank OpenOffice.org for reporting the CVE-2010-3451, CVE-2010-3452, CVE-2010-3453, CVE-2010-3454, and CVE-2010-4643 issues. Upstream acknowledges Dan Rosenberg of Virtual Security Research as the original reporter of the CVE-2010-3451, CVE-2010-3452, CVE-2010-3453, and CVE-2010-3454 issues. All OpenOffice.org users are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running instances of OpenOffice.org applications must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
