|Bugzilla:||725668: CVE-2011-2713 openoffice.org: Out-of-bounds read in DOC sprm parser|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
oowriter in OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 and LibreOffice before 3.4.3 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted DOC file that triggers an out-of-bounds read in the DOC sprm parser.
This issue results in an OOB read which is not exploitable for arbitrary code execution and can simply cause a crash. We do not consider this as a security issue.
