Debian DSA-4111-1 : libreoffice - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 106729


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Mikhail Klementev, Ronnie Goodrich and Andrew Krasichkov discovered that missing restrictions in the implementation of the WEBSERVICE function in LibreOffice could result in the disclosure of arbitrary files readable by the user who opens a malformed document.


Upgrade the libreoffice packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:5.2.7-1+deb9u2.
