USN-4138-1: LibreOffice vulnerability

24 September 2019

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




It was discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled embedded scripts in
document files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
document, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

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