Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation
Apache OpenOffice 3.4.0 to 3.4.1 on all platforms.
Predecessor versions of OpenOffice.org may be also affected.
The vulnerability is caused by operating on invalid PLCF (Plex of
Character Positions in File) data when parsing a malformed DOC document
file. Specially crafted documents can be used for denial-of-service
attacks. Further exploits are possible but have not been verified.
Apache OpenOffice 3.4 users are advised to upgrade to Apache
OpenOffice 4.0. Users who are unable to upgrade immediately should be
cautious when opening untrusted documents.
The Apache OpenOffice Security Team credits Jeremy Brown of
Microsoft Vulnerability Research as the discoverer of this flaw.
