- Synopsis: Security Vulnerability With Macros in OpenOffice.org
- Issue ID: 66863
- State: Resolved
A security vulnerability in OpenOffice.org may make it possible to inject basic code into documents which is executed upon loading of the document. The user will not be asked or notified and the macro will have full access to system resources with current user's privileges. As a result, the macro may delete/replace files, read/send private data and/or cause additional security issues.
Note: Disabling document macros will not prevent this issue.
