Description

Updated openoffice.org2 packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite. HSQLDB is the default database engine shipped with OpenOffice.org 2. It was discovered that HSQLDB could allow the execution of arbitrary public static Java methods. A carefully crafted odb file opened in OpenOffice.org Base could execute arbitrary commands with the permissions of the user running OpenOffice.org. (CVE-2007-4575) All users of OpenOffice.org are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
