Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91893
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled RTF document files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted RTF document, a remote attacker could cause LibreOffice to crash, and possibly execute arbitrary code.
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.
