Scientific Linux Security Update : libreoffice on SL7.x x86_64

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


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that LibreOffice disclosed contents of a
file specified in an embedded object's preview. An
attacker could potentially use this flaw to expose
details of a system running LibreOffice as an online
service via a crafted document. (CVE-2017-3157)

Bug Fix(es) :

- Previously, an improper resource management caused the
LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet application to terminate
unexpectedly after closing a dialog window with
accessibility support enabled. The resource management
has been improved, and the described problem no longer
occurs.

- Previously, when an incorrect password was entered for a
password protected document, the document has been
considered as valid and a fallback attempt to open it as
plain text has been made. As a consequence, it could
appear that the document succesfully loaded, while just
the encrypted unreadable content was shown. A fix has
been made to terminate import attempts after entering
incorrect password, and now nothing is loaded when a
wrong password is entered.

- Previously, an improper resource management caused the
LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet application to terminate
unexpectedly during exit, after the Text Import dialog
for CSV (Comma-separated Value) files closed, when
accessibility support was enabled. The resource
management has been improved, and the described problem
no longer occurs.
