OpenOffice.org spurns security worries


OpenOffice.org has rejected accusations that its open source application suite is at least as susceptible to attack as Microsoft's Office in a terse statement posted on its website.

"The OpenOffice.org community confirms it regards security as of the highest importance and will react immediately to any security issues," the statement read.

In a study conducted by the French Ministry of Defense's Signal Corps, researchers alleged that the danger from viruses and worms to OpenOffice.org is at least as high as for Microsoft Office, and may be higher. OpenOffice.org spurns security worries - Security - www.itnews.com.au
