Synopsis
========

OpenOffice.org uses insecure temporary files which could allow a
malicious local user to gain knowledge of sensitive information from
other users' documents.

Background
==========

OpenOffice.org is an office productivity suite, including word
processing, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, data charting,
formula editing, and file conversion facilities.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                       /  Vulnerable  /         Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-office/openoffice             == 1.1.2                < 1.1.2
                                                              >= 1.1.3
  2  app-office/openoffice-bin         == 1.1.2                < 1.1.2
                                                              >= 1.1.3
  3  app-office/openoffice-ximian      == 1.1.60              < 1.1.60
                                       == 1.1.61              >= 1.3.4
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     3 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

On start-up, OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 creates a temporary directory with
insecure permissions. When a document is saved, a compressed copy of it
can be found in that directory.

Impact
======

A malicious local user could obtain the temporary files and thus read
documents belonging to other users.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All affected OpenOffice.org users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.3"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-1.1.3"

All affected OpenOffice.org binary users should upgrade to the latest
version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-1.1.3"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-1.1.3"

All affected OpenOffice.org Ximian users should upgrade to the latest
version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.3.4"
    # emerge ">=app-office/openoffice-1.3.4"
