LibreOffice < 5.1.4 RTF Character Style Index RCE (macOS)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote
code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of LibreOffice installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X
host is prior to 5.1.4. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free
error due to improper handling of the character style index when
parsing RTF files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted RTF file, to
execute arbitrary code.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
