OpenOffice.org Security Flaw

The bad news: OpenOffice.org has a security flaw, which means that it can be crashed remotely. It can affect all versions, including the new 1.1 release.
The good news: It will only happen if you have OpenOffice.org running with Remote Access enabled (it’s disabled by default) and a well-configured firewall should prevent it from being expolited. A fix is apparently on its way too.
