    Will Dormann and Jared Allar discovered that the Lotus Word Pro import
    filter of OpenOffice.org, a full-featured office productivity suite that
    provides a near drop-in replacement for Microsoft(R) Office, is not
    properly handling object ids in the ".lwp" file format.  An attacker can
    exploit this with a specially crafted file and execute arbitrary code with
    the rights of the victim importing the file.
    
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:3.2.1-11+squeeze3.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    libreoffice version 1:3.3.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openoffice.org packages.
