Subject: CVE Request -- OpenOffice.org [two ids]: 1, integer truncation error
 2, short integer overflow

Hi Steve, vendors,

   two security flaws have been reported against OpenOffice.org's Impress tool:
     [1] http://securityevaluators.com/files/papers/CrashAnalysis.pdf

A, an integer truncation error, leading to heap-based buffer overflow when
    processing dictionary property items of the input *.ppt file:

      [5] http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgNo=27690

B, a short integer overflow, leading to heap-based buffer overflow, when processing
    *.ppt document with too big polygons

      [9] http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgNo=27690

Could you allocate CVE ids for these two issues?

Thanks && Regards, Jan.
