OpenOffice Desktop DoS




================================
Illegalaccess.org Security Alert
================================

Date : 08/10/2003
Application : Openoffice
Version : 1.1.0
Website : <http://www.Openoffice.org>
Problems : Desktop Denial-Of-Service
Severity : Low
Contributor : Marc Schoenefeld, marc@org.illegalaccess <mailto:marc@org.illegalaccess>

When enabling remote access (UNO) to OpenOffice,
it opens a port (default 8100). This is done typically with
the following command:

C:\Programme\oo1.1.0\program> soffice
"-accept=socket,host=<ip>,port=8100;urp;"

where <ip> states the listening address

When issuing the commands listed below, Openoffice crashes and
prompts the error reporting box.

===================================================================
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\User>telnet 127.0.0.1 8100
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
