Fedora 16 : libreoffice- (2012-11402)

High Nessus Plugin ID 61498


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Multiple heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the XML manifest encryption tag parsing code of LibreOffice. An attacker could create a specially crafted file in the Open Document Format for Office Applications (ODF) format which when opened could cause arbitrary code execution.

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


Update the affected libreoffice package.
