Up to now, most people said that no virii exist for OpenOffice, and thsi it thus is an extremely secure office suite.

According to F-Secure, this is wrong-a first proof-of-concept called StarDust.A has been spotted recently.

StarDust.A is said to be a non-working ‘test shot’ for creating a macro virus that works with OpenOffice-lets hope that the situation doesn’t get as bad as it currently is for Microsoft Office users!

What do you think?
