Debian security update to openoffice.org

It is still openoffice in the most recently released stable version of Debian, which is still "squeeze". You're thinking of the unreleased testing distro, "wheezy"
As the advisory says:
> openoffice.org package has been replaced by libreoffice in testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions.
The versions they list for wheezy and sid are version numbers for the libreoffice packages.

Actually, I wasn't even thinking of wheezy but of sid (even if at the moment, they're not really different).
I had forgotten that there was something even older than Wheezy that still had security updates. Not that stable has no use : I have a NAS with Squeeze (because the trouble caused by a broken upgrade is greater when you don't even have console access), but of course I wouldn't install *office on it.
