A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Software description

  • openoffice.org-l10n

Details

USN-677-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenOffice.org. The changes required that
openoffice.org-l10n also be updated for the new version in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.

Original advisory details:

Multiple memory overflow flaws were discovered in OpenOffice.org's handling of
WMF and EMF files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
document, a remote attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code with user
privileges. (CVE-2008-2237, CVE-2008-2238)

Dmitry E. Oboukhov discovered that senddoc, as included in OpenOffice.org,
created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race
condition to create or overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking
the program. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2008-4937)
