USN-188-1: AbiWord vulnerability
Posted on: 09/29/2005 05:12 AM

A new AbiWord vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-188-1 September 29, 2005
abiword vulnerability
CAN-2005-2964
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

abiword
abiword-gnome

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.0.7+cvs.2004.05.05-1ubuntu3.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or
2.2.2-1ubuntu2.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04). After a standard system upgrade
you need to restart AbiWord to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

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