Red Hat: Updated openoffice.org packages fix security issues

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite that includes desktop applications such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, formula editor, and drawing program. A Sun security specialist reported an issue with the application framework. An attacker could put macros into document locations that could cause OpenOffice.org to execute them when the file was opened by a victim. A bug was found in the OpenOffice.org Java virtual machine implementation. An attacker could write a carefully crafted Java applet that can break through the "sandbox" and have full access to system resources with the current user privileges. A buffer overflow bug was found in the OpenOffice.org file processor. An attacker could create a carefully crafted XML file that could cause OpenOffice.org to write data to an arbitrary location in memory when the file was opened by a victim. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
