USN-1525-1: Calligra vulnerability

9 August 2012

Calligra could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.



  • calligra - integrated work applications suite


It was discovered that Calligra incorrectly handled certain malformed
MS Word documents. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening
a crafted MS Word file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or
execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04

After a standard system update you need to restart Calligra to make
all the necessary changes.
