LibreOffice is an open source, community-developed office productivity
suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word
processor, spreadsheet application, presentation manager, formula
editor, and a drawing program.

Multiple heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way
LibreOffice processed encryption information in the manifest files of
OpenDocument Format files. An attacker could provide a specially
crafted OpenDocument Format file that, when opened in a LibreOffice
application, would cause the application to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application. (CVE-2012-2665)

All LibreOffice users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
