Details

It was discovered that OpenOffice.org incorrectly handled certain
encryption tags in Open Document Text (.odt) files. If a user were tricked
into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause
OpenOffice.org to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user invoking the program.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 10.04

After a standard system update you need to restart OpenOffice.org to make
all the necessary changes.
