RHEL 9 : libreoffice (RHSA-2023:6508)

high Nessus Plugin ID 185155

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2023:6508 advisory.

- Apache OpenOffice versions before 4.1.14 may be configured to add an empty entry to the Java class path.
This may lead to run arbitrary Java code from the current directory. (CVE-2022-38745)

- Improper Validation of Array Index vulnerability in the spreadsheet component of The Document Foundation LibreOffice allows an attacker to craft a spreadsheet document that will cause an array index underflow when loaded. In the affected versions of LibreOffice certain malformed spreadsheet formulas, such as AGGREGATE, could be created with less parameters passed to the formula interpreter than it expected, leading to an array index underflow, in which case there is a risk that arbitrary code could be executed.
This issue affects: The Document Foundation LibreOffice 7.4 versions prior to 7.4.6; 7.5 versions prior to 7.5.1. (CVE-2023-0950)

- A flaw was found in the Libreoffice package. An attacker can craft an odb containing a database/script file with a SCRIPT command where the contents of the file could be written to a new file whose location was determined by the attacker. (CVE-2023-1183)

- Improper access control in editor components of The Document Foundation LibreOffice allowed an attacker to craft a document that would cause external links to be loaded without prompt. In the affected versions of LibreOffice documents that used floating frames linked to external files, would load the contents of those frames without prompting the user for permission to do so. This was inconsistent with the treatment of other linked content in LibreOffice. This issue affects: The Document Foundation LibreOffice 7.4 versions prior to 7.4.7; 7.5 versions prior to 7.5.3. (CVE-2023-2255)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
