               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated openoffice.org packages fix security issues
Advisory ID:       FLSA:154988
Issue date:        2005-05-12
Product:           Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords:          Bugfix
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-0752 CAN-2005-0941
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated openoffice.org packages that fix two security issues are now
available.

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop
applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation
manager, formula editor, and drawing program.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

Secunia Research reported an issue with the handling of temporary
files. A malicious local user could use this flaw to access the contents
of another user's open documents. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0752 to
this issue.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was found in the OpenOffice.org DOC
file processor. An attacker could create a carefully crafted DOC file in
such a way that it could cause OpenOffice.org to execute arbitrary code
when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0941 to
this issue.

All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security.  Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

    sha1sum <filename>
