Title: CVE-2015-1774 Out of bounds write in HWP file filter

Announced: April  27, 2015

Fixed in: LibreOffice 4.3.7/4.4.2


Certain crafted HWP documents can allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code by writing past the end of buffers.

All users are recommended to upgrade to LibreOffice 4.3.7 or 4.4.2.

@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.

Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2015-05-22 23:31:14 UTC
1) go for immediately
2) sync this with the icu-55.1 stabilization 
   (libreoffice-bin generation, just think of the climate...)

In preparation.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2015-05-24 16:43:25 UTC
Arches please TEST (especially the binpkg) and stabilize, target "amd64 x86"


(for icu see also bug 546156 for the remaining arches)
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-05-27 10:58:19 UTC
amd64 stable
Comment 5 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-05-27 10:59:04 UTC
x86 stable.

Maintainer(s), please cleanup.

CVE-2015-1774 (
  The HWP filter in LibreOffice before 4.3.7 and 4.4.x before 4.4.2 and Apache
  OpenOffice before 4.1.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted HWP document, which
  triggers an out-of-bounds write.
