3. 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 EMF parser. An attacker could create
a carefully crafted EMF file that could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code if the malicious EMF image was added to a
document or if a document containing the malicious EMF file was opened by a
victim. (CVE-2007-5746)

A heap overflow flaw was found in the OLE Structured Storage file parser.
(OLE Structured Storage is a format used by Microsoft Office documents.) An
attacker could create a carefully crafted OLE file that could cause
OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was
opened by a victim. (CVE-2008-0320)

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported fixes to correct these issues.
