GLSA-201209-10 : Calligra: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 62300
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-10 (Calligra: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
An error in the read() function in styles.cpp could cause a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted ODF file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Calligra users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/calligra-2.4.3-r1'
