Though Microsoft’s Office suite may currently be targeted by hackers, researchers at the French Ministry of Defense say users of the rival OpenOffice.org software could be at even greater risk from computer viruses.

“The general security of OpenOffice is insufficient,” the researchers wrote in a paper entitled “In-depth analysis of the viral threats with OpenOffice.org documents.”

“This suite is up to now still vulnerable to many potential malware attacks,” they wrote.
