A review of the code in filter/source/msfilter msdffimp.cxx in OpenOffice.org versions 3.3 and 3.4 Beta revealed some unchecked memory allocations, which could be exploited via malformed Powerpoint graphics records ("escher") to cause bad_alloc exceptions. From this vulnerability a denial of service attack is possible.
