                  NOTICE: APACHE OPENOFFICE SECURITY ADVISORY

                  CVE-2015-5213: .DOC DOCUMENT VULNERABILITY

                        FIXED IN APACHE OPENOFFICE 4.1.2

CVE-2015-5213
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2015-5213>
Apache OpenOffice Advisory
<https://www.openoffice.org/security/cves/CVE-2015-5213.html>

Title: Memory Corruption Vulnerability (DOC Piecetable)

Version 1.0
Announced 2015-11-04

    A crafted Microsoft Word DOC file can be used to specify a
    document buffer that is too small for the amount of data
    provided for it.  Failure to detect the discrepancy allows
    an attacker to cause denial of service (memory corruption
    and application crash) and possible execution of arbitrary
    code.

Severity: Important

    There are no known exploits of this vulnerability.
    A proof-of-concept demonstration exists.

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected

    All Apache OpenOffice versions 4.1.1 and older are affected
    OpenOffice.org versions are also affected.

Mitigation

    Apache OpenOffice users are urged to download and install
    Apache OpenOffice version 4.1.2 or later.  DOC files having
    the defect are detected and made ineffective in 4.1.2.

Precautions

    Users who do not upgrade to Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 should
    be careful of .DOC files from unknown or unreliable sources.
    A Microsoft Word 97-2003 DOC format file can be checked
    by opening it with software, such as Microsoft Office Word or
    Word Online, that rejects documents having this defect as
    corrupted.

Further Information

    For additional information and assistance, consult the Apache
    OpenOffice Community Forums, <https://forum.openoffice.org/>,
    or make requests to the <mailto:[hidden email]>
    public mailing list.
