AD-LAB has reported a vulnerability in OpenOffice, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "StgCompObjStream::Load()" function when processing ".doc" document files. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into opening a malicious document containing a specially crafted header.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions 1.1.4 and prior and in the 2.0 beta release.
