Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : libreoffice vulnerability (USN-3046-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92750
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionYves Younan and Richard Johnson discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled presentation files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted presentation file, 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.
