Synopsis :

updates.

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in libreoffice :

An integer overflow vulnerability in the libreoffice graphic loading
code could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service
(application crash) or potentially execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2012-1149).

An integer overflow flaw, leading to buffer overflow, was found in the
way libreoffice processed invalid Escher graphics records length in
