Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: OpenOffice.org vulnerability when using DAV servers (GLSA 200405-04)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 11, 2004
Updated: October 27, 2004
Bug(s): #47926
ID: 200405-04

Synopsis


Several format string vulnerabilities are present in the Neon library
included in OpenOffice.org, allowing remote execution of arbitrary code
when connected to an untrusted WebDAV server.


Background


OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite, including word processing,
spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, data charting, formula editing, and
file conversion facilities.


Affected Packages

Package: app-office/openoffice
Vulnerable: <= 1.1.1
Unaffected: >= 1.1.1-r1
Architectures: x86

Package: app-office/openoffice
Vulnerable: <= 1.0.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.0.3-r2
Architectures: ppc

Package: app-office/openoffice
Vulnerable: <= 1.1.0-r3
Unaffected: >= 1.1.0-r4
Architectures: sparc

Package: app-office/openoffice-ximian
Vulnerable: <= 1.1.51
Unaffected: >= 1.1.51-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: app-office/openoffice-bin
Vulnerable: < 1.1.2
Unaffected: >= 1.1.2
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: app-office/openoffice-ximian-bin
Vulnerable: <= 1.1.52
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


OpenOffice.org includes code from the Neon library in functions related to
publication on WebDAV servers. This library is vulnerable to several format
string attacks.


Impact


If you use the WebDAV publication and connect to a malicious WebDAV server,
this server can exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running OpenOffice.org.


Workaround


As a workaround, you should not use the WebDAV publication facilities.


Resolution


There is no Ximian OpenOffice.org binary version including the fix yet. All
users of the openoffice-ximian-bin package making use of the WebDAV
openoffice-ximian source-based package.

openoffice users on the x86 architecture should:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.1-r1"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.1-r1"

openoffice users on the sparc architecture should:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.0-r3"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.0-r3"

openoffice users on the ppc architecture should:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-1.0.3-r1"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-1.0.3-r1"

openoffice-ximian users should:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.1.51-r1"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.1.51-r1"

openoffice-bin users should:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-1.1.2"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-1.1.2"
