Package : openoffice.org
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local (remote)
CVE ID : CVE-2007-2834
A heap overflow vulnerability has been discovered in the TIFF parsing
code of the OpenOffice.org suite. The parser uses untrusted values
from the TIFF file to calculate the number of bytes of memory to
allocate. A specially crafted TIFF image could trigger an integer
overflow and subsequently a buffer overflow that could cause the
execution of arbitrary code.
