USN-3022-1: LibreOffice vulnerability

29 June 2016

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




It was discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled RTF document files.
If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted RTF document, a
remote attacker could cause LibreOffice to crash, and possibly execute
arbitrary code.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 15.10
Ubuntu 12.04

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