LibreOffice < 5.1.4 RTF Character Style Index RCE (macOS)
High Nessus Plugin ID 91975
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of LibreOffice installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 5.1.4. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free error due to improper handling of the character style index when parsing RTF files. 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.
