A 'highly critical' flaw has been discovered in the OpenOffice suite of products that could allow hackers to access a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused by integer overflows when processing certain tags within Tiff images.
This problem could be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows, possibly by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted document.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions earlier than OpenOffice 2.3 and the problem can be fixed by upgrading to the latest version of the software.
OpenOffice is a free office productivity suite that includes a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, formula editor and drawing program.
