Oracle Outside In Library OOXML Overflow

Added: 02/03/2012
CVE: CVE-2012-0110
BID: 51452
OSVDB: 78411


Oracle Outside In is a a suite of software development kits that allows developers with a comprehensive solution to access, transform, and control the contents of over 500 unstructured file formats.


Outside In versions 8.3.5 through 8.3.7 fail to properly validate fields in OpenOffice XML (OOXML) documents. If a user opens a malicious OOXML document in a piece of software that uses the vulnerable SDK, an attacker could take over execution of the target's system.


Because Outside In is an SDK, 3rd party applications distribute the libraries. Check with your application provider to make sure you are running the latest version of the affected software.
