USN-202-1: KOffice vulnerability
Posted on: 10/12/2005 03:22 AM

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

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-202-1 October 12, 2005
koffice vulnerability
CAN-2005-2971
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

koffice-libs
kword

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:1.3.5-2ubuntu1.1. After a standard system upgrade you need
to restart all KOffice applications to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

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