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


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

LibreOffice was updated to version 5.1.3.2, bringing many new features
and bug fixes.

Two security issues have been fixed :

- CVE-2016-0795: LibreOffice allowed remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
LwpTocSuperLayout record in a LotusWordPro (lwp)
document.

- CVE-2016-0794: The lwp filter in LibreOffice allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact
via a crafted LotusWordPro (lwp) document.

A comprehensive list of new features and improvements in this release
is provided by the Document Foundation at
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.1 .

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