LibreOffice < 5.1.4 RTF Character Style Index RCE
High Nessus Plugin ID 91974
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of LibreOffice installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 5.1.4. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free error during Rich Text Format (RTF) file parsing due to improper validation of the RTF character style index. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted RTF file, to execute arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to LibreOffice version 5.1.4 or later.
