Summary
-------

Multiple issues have been identified in LibreOffice / OpenOffice that
allow to execute arbitrary code via specially crafted office files.

Elements outside expected parent elements
-----------------------------------------

Initially, the aSequence attribute of a ManifestImport instance has
no memory allocated for PropertyValue elements.
ManifestImport::startElement() (re)allocates memory when
a "manifest:file-entry" XML element is encountered in the manifest
file. The property values are, for example, accessed when
a "manifest:encryption-data" XML element is found. If such
elements are located outside an expected parent element
"manifest:file-entry", ManifestImport::startElement() accesses
aSequence out-of-bounds.

Writes beyond fixed size buffer
-------------------------------

ManifestImport::startElement() allocates memory for 12 (=
PKG_SIZE_ENCR_MNFST) PropertValue elements. If
a "manifest:file-entry" XML element has child elements that cause
startElement() to access more than 12 PropertValues, startElement()
accesses aSequence out-of-bounds.

Base64Codec::decodeBase64()
---------------------------

ManifestImport::startElement() calls Base64Codec::decodeBase64() to
decode the XML attributes for checksums, initialization vectors, and
salt values. Base64Codec::decodeBase64() implicitly assumes that the
source buffer sBuffer contains a number of characters divisible by 4.
If this is not the case, the called method FourByteToThreeByte()
writes up to 3 bytes past a buffer allocated on the heap.

Solution
--------

The issue has been fixed in LibreOffice 3.5.5.
An update to Apache OpenOffice is pending.
