Features, Office OpenOffice.org has hit back at claims that the alternative office applications suite is riddled with security holes. Researchers at the French Ministry of Defense say that OpenOffice is subject to security weaknesses that make it at least as susceptible to computer viruses as the commercial, more widely used, Microsoft Office.

From an engineering point of view I'd concede that they should be investigating the claims in depth. They seem to be at least opening communication lines up with the authors.

However, I really don't think that OO.o is going to rapidly become hugely popular, even over the next two years.

Also keep in mind the product will evolve and wont be tomorrow what it is today.
