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

opening a specially crafted presentation file, a remote attacker could
cause LibreOffice to crash, and possibly execute arbitrary code.

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.
