Ubuntu Security Notice 1496-1 - A stack-based buffer overflow was discovered in the Lotus Word Pro import filter in OpenOffice.org.

Huzaifa Sidhpurwala discovered that OpenOffice.org could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted Word document. Integer overflows were discovered in the graphics loading code of several different image types. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Various other issues were also addressed.
