Details

Rohan Durve and James Kettle discovered LibreOffice Calc sometimes allowed
for command injection when opening spreadsheets. If a user were tricked
into opening a crafted Calc spreadsheet, an attacker could exploit this to

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 14.04

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