Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : libreoffice vulnerability (USN-2400-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79120
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled OLE preview generation. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted document, an attacker could possibly exploit this to embed arbitrary data into documents.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libreoffice-core package.
