  2. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I should have explained better in the post. It was motivated by a friend who asked me if I had anything on Open Office security. I had only those old links so I posted them, but forgot to mention they were old, even being from a recent past, so not that old.

    Anyway, they are old, not obsolete as they are not all solved nor in backlog yet, so some are still a concern and must be remembered.
