Synopsis


An unspecified vulnerability has been reported in OpenOffice.org, possibly
allowing for the execution of arbitrary code.


Background


OpenOffice.org is an open source office productivity suite, including
word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, data charting,
formula editing, and file conversion facilities.

Description


The HSQLDB engine, as used in Openoffice.org, does not properly enforce
restrictions to SQL statements.


Impact

document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary Java
code with the privileges of the user running OpenOffice.org.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All OpenOffice.org users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/openoffice-2.3.1"
