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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

LibreOffice was updated to version 5.1.5.2, bringing enhancements and
bug fixes.

- CVE-2016-4324: Parsing the Rich Text Format character
style index was insufficiently checked for validity.
Documents could be constructed which dereference an
iterator to the first entry of an empty STL container.
(bsc#987553)

- Don't use 'nullable' for introspection, as it isn't
available on SLE 12's version of gobject-introspection.
This prevents a segmentation fault in gnome-documents.
(bsc#1000102)

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.
