[Backports-security-announce] Security update for openoffice.org

Rene Engelhard uploaded a new package for openoffice.org which fixed the
following security problem:


It was discovered that OpenOffice.org, a full-featured office productivity
suite that provides a near drop-in replacement for Microsoft(R) Office, is
not properly handling python macros embedded in an office document.  This
allows an attacker to perform user-assisted execution of arbitrary code in
certain use cases of the python macro viewer component.

For the lenny-backports distribution, these problems have been fixed in
version 1:3.2.0-11~bpo50+1.

pgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update openoffice.org
manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install openoffice.org".

We recommend to pin the backports repository to 200 so that new versions
of installed backports will be installed automatically:

Package: *
Pin: release a=lenny-backports
Pin-Priority: 200
