Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Rohan Durve and James Kettle discovered LibreOffice Calc sometimes
allowed for command injection when opening spreadsheets. If a user
were tricked into opening a crafted Calc spreadsheet, an attacker
could exploit this to run programs as your login.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected libreoffice-core package.
