LibreOffice < 3.5.7 / 3.6.1 Multiple Denial of Service Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple
denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description :

A version of LibreOffice prior to 3.5.7 / 3.6.1 is installed on the
remote Mac OS X host. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by
multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in various import filters:

- Excel (.xls)

- Windows Meta File (.wmf)

- Open Document Format (.odg / .odt)

This could allow a remote attacker with a specially crafted file to
crash the application upon loading.

Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues, but has
instead relied only on the self-reported version number.
