CVE-2012-2149 OpenOffice.org memory overwrite vulnerability

Reference: http://www.openoffice.org/security/cves/CVE-2012-2149.html

Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:

OpenOffice.org 3.3 and 3.4 Beta, on all platforms.
Earlier versions may be also affected.

Description:

Effected versions of OpenOffice.org use a customized libwpd that has a
memory overwrite vulnerability that could be exploited by a specially
crafted Wordperfect WPD-format document, potentially leading to
arbitrary-code execution at application user privilege level.

Mitigation

OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 and 3.4 beta users are advised to upgrade to
Apache OpenOffice 3.4, where WPD files are ignored. Users who are
unable to upgrade immediately should be cautious when opening
untrusted WPD documents.

Credits

The Apache OpenOffice Security Team acknowledges Kestutis Gudinavicius
of SEC Consult Unternehmensberatung GmbH as the discoverer of this flaw.
