From ${URL} :

Berlin, August 28, 2014 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.3.1, the first minor release of LibreOffice 4.3 “fresh” family, with over 100 fixes (including patches for two CVEs, backported to LibreOffice 4.2.6-secfix, which is also available for 
download now).

All LibreOffice users are invited to update their installation as soon as possible to avoid security issues. This includes users who are running LibreOffice 4.2.6 as originally released on August, 5th 2014.

LibreOffice 4.3.1 and LibreOffice 4.2.6 will be shown on stage at the LibreOffice Conference in Bern, from September 3 to September 5, with a large number of sessions about development, community, marketing and migrations. The program of the event is available 

In addition to the sessions in English, there will be a track in German focusing on open source adoptions in governments and enterprises in Switzerland, Germany and Austria:

People interested in technical details about the release can access the change log here: (fixed in RC1) and (fixed in RC2).

CVEs patched in LibreOffice 4.3.1 and LibreOffice 4.2.6 are CVE-2014-3524 “CSV Command Injection and DDE formulas” and CVE-2014-3575 “Arbitrary File Disclosure using crafted OLE objects”.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

I've just added to the tree where this is fixed. Let's wait a few days and then stabilize it (including bin packages that still need to be built).
Comment 4 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2014-09-10 04:50:53 UTC
Will call for stabilize on or after Sept 16.
