- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-0794, CVE-2016-0795.
- More information:
An anonymous contributor working with VeriSign iDefense Labs discovered that libreoffice, a full-featured office productivity suite, did not correctly handle Lotus WordPro files. This would enable an attacker to crash the program, or execute arbitrary code, by supplying a specially crafted LWP file.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.5.4+dfsg2-0+deb7u6.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1:4.3.3-2+deb8u3.
For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these problems have been fixed in version 1:5.0.5~rc1-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libreoffice packages.
