Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libreoffice (MDVSA-2012:063)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An XML External Entity expansion flaw was found in the way Raptor
processed RDF files. If an application linked against Raptor were to
open a specially crafted RDF file, it could possibly allow a remote
attacker to obtain a copy of an arbitrary local file that the user
running the application had access to. A bug in the way Raptor handled
external entities could cause that application to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application (CVE-2012-0037).

libreoffice for Mandriva Linux 2011 has been upgraded to the 3.4.6
version which is not vulnerable to this issue.
